Linux Kernel Developers Fed Up With Ridiculous Bugs In Systemd
A tangent thought: /proc sure is great for scripting, but I'm still dumbfounded that native applications have to parse strings to get system information on Linux. Even the awful Windows API got it right here ... It's really awkward to see someone declare a character buffer or string, open a file, read the file into a buffer and then use <string> or <cstring> operations to get the information ... I mean, frankly, it's really stupid and the format of these files isn't always straightforward or even documented. Some of them are just space delimited numbers with no obvious meaning - I wouldn't even call that human-readable - at least a struct can have named members and comments.
It comes from a unix philosophy and Most if not all of them are well documented
That's a pretty silly issue. I'd say the ideal thing to do would be to add systemd.loglevel=n where the default was 0 (no log output), 1 would output just a bit and something around 5 would start crashing the system.
(And they wanted this systemd stuff in the kernel and whatsnot.)
Noooo.. Go back to your dream world Adarion. There's been systemd-centric support added to the Kernel in a couple ways but there's been nothing discussed about adding "systemd" to the kernel and nothing that your comment could even be interpreted as other than pointless flamebait or trolling.
It would have been funnier if this had happenend when debian was chosing systemd vs upstart. so much for omg systemd is just perfect.
Fanboys will never learn. Systemd holds no real advantage over sysvint and all its perceived advantages are either superfluous daemons that re-invent things better implemented somewhere or pure cosmetics like slightly faster boot times. Are those worth all the trouble we have to put up with and all the freedom we stand to lose? In my opinion - absolutely not. But fanboys will never learn.
