    Phoronix: Lennart Poettering Points Out That Fedora Workstation Could Lose Some Weight

    Well known open-source developer Lennart Poettering has shined some light onto Fedora Workstation's packaging state that it could be beneficial reducing the set of packages installed by default...

    They should drop the gnome3 desktop with its applications, systemd, pulseaudio and networkmanager. If they want to have a stable, light and fast distribution. The installer of my gaming distribution is 539 MB. It has Debian testing/sid Xfce, steam, latest open source GPU drivers, wine-staging and dxvk.

      I opened the news expecting to see him propose something along the lines of:
      Code:
      find / ! -name systemd-* -exec rm -f {} \;

        These comments are so predictable.

          Yeh. I expected him to find the answer to life, the universe and everything but I guess we'll both wrong.

          5. libvirtd. Why is this running? Can't we make this socket activatable + exit-on-idel?
          This seems like a good idea, libvirtd is running using 15MB of memory doing exactly nothing until it's needed. Tbh CUPS should be an socket too.

            Wait, you mean that you expected Phoronix forums not to jump to Gnome and systemd trolling whenever any of Lennart Poettring, Red Hat or Fedora is mentionned?

                These days I dont care about disk space so much. But I dislike having so many running services by default. Linux is nice and modular but really needs a better services model. CUPs doesn't need to run until I have a print job. In my use case I rarely print anything. Configure a printer and dont start until I want to print.
                I for one really hope the packaged application and supporting libraries makes further inroads. I'm tired of obscure packages not running due to some dependency on a specific package or version that aren't readily available anymore.

                  systemd can do this. CUPS needs updating I'd imagine.
