Just because you leave your front door open doesn't mean someone has a right to rob your home.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Who are you? What do you even do with the rest of your life when it's not waiting to post something about systemd in every single article on Slashdot?
That's a level of seamless you just can't get from any other combination.
I really don't know what sysadmins can be complaining about with node. npm install and you pull in all the dependencies. Without needing superuser privileges, or performing system-wide installations. Node.js apps play very nicely together in my experience.
Yes. All that free software is being so unfairly kept from you.
Of course he doesn't. He might as well have randomly picked any line from "dpkg -l | grep lib" and written the same article. It would've been exactly as sensible.
Mint also works just fine with systemd, the biggest problem was needing an mdm.service file (which is now in MDM head i believe anyway).
Yes. Welcome to parallel programming and all serious software development since the 1980s. It's complicated. Get used to it or stop worrying about it.
There are CONSTANT statements that if you do not use systemd you will not be able to use primary Linux distros in the future, because all software will supposedly be gobbled up by it as a dependency...
Okay. Now ask yourself why. No really think about it. What functionality does systemd offer for user facing software that makes it a dependency. Certainly not it as an init system, or its logging, or ntp, or any of the many other things it does.
I don't know the answer to this, but once you narrow it down you're on the way to resolving the issue. Software doesn't depend on systemd, it implements some feature that systemd provides. If everyone is so dead set against systemd then it should be fairly straight forward to provide a shim that exposes the required APIs so that your software is happy. That is typically how dependencies work.
Kind of like how one of uselessd's goals is to get Gnome working without any systemd connection. Based on the amounts of complaints there has to be at least 10000 developers working on the problem right now.
Isn't libsystemd a shim library? Isn't that it's whole point? Since you know, it gets installed without the rest of systemd by software which wants to connect to systemd if it's running but otherwise ignore it?
You need 120hz for VR displays, which is exactly where 8K embedded displays are actually useful, and the same reason John Carmack wants to try and cram that into an intelligent interlaced format to optimize for a 60 Hz capability model.
This attitude is part of everything that's wrong with the prison system. The idea that prisoners should be relied upon and expected to met out additional extrajudicial punishment to other prisoners. The idea that prison rape is "ok" because it's happening to other prisoners.
It's the pulse rate of the radio. The radio turns on and off at audio frequencies, so the interference smears out to become the classic chirp sound.
Also speed means the laser doesn't need to be highly destructive. There's absolutely no problem with simply locking a suitably powerful laser on a target and firing it continuously until the target undergoes a failure, because so long as your tracking is working you pretty much will never miss - there's 0 effective flight time on terrestrial scales.
Your argument is "the Sovereign should have all the power he wants, and every whim indulged, because the only other choice is anarchy, and life there is nasty brutish and short." Hobbes' Leviathan. The opposing political philosophy was voiced be Locke. Have you heard of him? Much of the US Declaration of Independence was copied from Locke's works.
What do you think it says that this nation was founded on the principle that your simple-minded view was so wrong that it's worth going to war over?
Your nation is a democracy. Represented by the people. If its not that, then it doesn't matter what you think. But you seem to think it is that. In which case, taxes go to the people, and for the provision of their needs.
Keep on chugging that koolaid. But there's no possible way Apple Australia earns $6 billion locally, with our local 20% corporate tax rate, yet somehow only pays $80.3 million in taxes.
It's bullshit, and everybody knows it. Except you, apparently.
