TuxMachines: systemd Or Poettering, Name Your Poison

Monday 9th of February 2015 11:59:43 AM

The issue is the same as I have with the boot-times for my desktop PC, systemd makes assumptions that break Debian systems. In my case, systemd insists on every other service starting and running before attempting to start X, the thing I want up ASAP. In the case of the bug reported above, how the system time was handled over a reboot is changed with systemd. The old behaviour was that the clock was stored and retrieved so things survived reboots nicely. No more. Poettering et al have decided that time should be set by NTP or other means and systemd should not have anything to do with that although systemd is replacing the old init that did… BREAKAGE!!! Now I know why Linus swears so much! If a change to systemd breaks user’s systems, it’s a bug in systemd, not that the world needs to change to be the way Poettering wants. Putting folks who break things in charge of millions of systems is a tragedy of huge proportions. People should not have to rewrite init scripts to switch to systemd. Otherwise, systemd should get the Hell out of our way… or go away…

I use OS X quite often during my day job. I'm able to tolerate it largelydue to the terminal. If I couldn't do my work with green text on ablack background, I think I'd go crazy (or crazier). Unfortunately,OS X doesn't come with all the command-line tools I need. That's whereHomebrew comes in to save the day.

TuxMachines: Changes I Made When Installing Fedora 21 On My New Ultrabook

Monday 9th of February 2015 09:11:59 AM

The short story is that I didn't do many tweaks to my GNOME 3.14 desktop and it's going well. Fedora 21 with GNOME 3.14 is running well for my X1 Carbon connected to this affordable 4K monitor. The only tweaks made were enabling icons on the GNOME Shell desktop (to get closer to my original workflow) and allowing thumbnails on images greater than 10MB (with the many original DSLR photos for Phoronix articles being 15MB+).
