It's a problem with almost every distro, right? Like what doesn't have systemd, slack?

No, it's only a problem for distros that don't have systemd. The problem is that newer versions of upower need systemd to do hibernate/suspend, and KDE uses upower.

The bug is a packaging error made by Devuan. I can't imagine why somebody decided to report the bug to the KDE team.

What are the "non-systemd distros" that are crumbling?

Well, if you could be bothered to read the article, written by some gut called "yeupou" the answer is obviously Devuan, who managed to break suspend and hibernate in KDE by packaging the wrong version of upower.

You don't need to write new code to avoid it, either switch to a distro without system

But this whole discussion is about someone who switched to a distribution without systemd and that distro, Devuan, broke his KDE. And so he made a bug report to KDE, instead of to the people who made the bug -- the "Veteran Unix Adminstrators" at Devuan.
