Yeah, like I'm going to click on that link you posted! Can't fool me.
You may have an out of date version of systemd. The "noauto" option works fine for me.
There is Choice. Users can install the systemd-shim package, if they want to use other packages that are dependent on systemd.
Haven't tried it myself, but from all reports, seems to work pretty well.
I think that emacs would make an excellent init system. It does everything else, so why not!
Well, to be fair, there have been lies, manipulations, and propaganda aplenty on both sides.
As for your boot mount issue, the most common issue I've seen people have is with the way systemd treats the fstab file. Systemd will considers _any_ filesystem listed in
It's not necessarily a design flaw. Just a design that is slightly incompatible with the sysvinit way of doing things. Once you understand it, you'll be able to easily cope with this aspect of systemd behaviour.
Well, if you want systemd to leave your entry alone, surely a "noauto" would work. Then you can use a local script to do the mount.
It'd be interesting to see what your logs say when it comes to the point where it tries to mount your system. Perhaps the mount command is returning an error code, even with the "degraded" option set. In which case, perhaps try "nofail" in the fstab options, and see how it behaves with that.
Otherwise, you could remove/comment out the entry from your fstab, and use a native systemd mount config to mount the filesystem. Look at the systemd.mount man page. You'll need to create the config file in
Try adding "nofail" to the fstab entry options for your usb hard disk. Should be fine after that.
Sorry, your words have little weight because you're posting them as an Anonymous Coward. More hypocrisy at show, as far as I'm concerned.
SJW? Hmmm, never heard of that term before. After looking it up, I don't think you've used it correctly.
We each have our breaking point. Anyone will break when subject to a verbal tirade of appropriate intensity. Yes, even you, Mr/Miss AC. It's just as valid a reason as family, health, or job issues.
You are not in a position to call out his character, unless you've experienced what he did. Unless you've volunteered yourself, given up your precious time and effort, for no recompense, and then been insulted, threatened, cursed, and have had every hateful expression thrown at you for your work. You cannot judge, because you just don't _know_.
The fact that there is such a toxic environment is the cause of my worry. That environment is not just in Debian developer circles. Every Slashdot poster, AC or otherwise, that has cheered this decision is a contributor to that poison. Every hater that has posted in any forum is a contributor to that poison. If you have done so, think long and hard about where you want open source software to go. Because if it continues down this path, there will be little future for it, and that's quite sad to me.
The positive thing to do, rather than rant and rave, is to go out and create a better alternative! Create, rather than destroy. I believe that forking is a positive thing to do. At least you're creating something new, which may even have a future, instead of cursing those who are actually trying to do something.
Bizarre reply. There is cowardice, and then there is foolishness. Listing your email address on a public forum would be the latter.
Are you trying to imply that the original AC was _not_ a coward for heatedly attacking a volunteer behind the veil of anonymity?
You realise the whole reason he is leaving the Debian systemd team is precisely because of attitudes you've just displayed in your post. Deciding to heave a _volunteer_ position is his right, and it's rather impressive that you can get so angry about it.
Still, I had a good laugh. An Anonymous Coward heatedly taunting someone else as a Coward. Hypocrisy is humorous.
Sounds like someone needs a nice cup of tea, a Bex, and a good lie down.
It's a massive improvement from a year or so ago. No reasonable person would expect that all, or even the majority, of Windows games would suddenly have native Linux ports in such a short time period. Personally, I'm quite amazed that it's grown as fast as it has, and I'm sure that Steam and Humble Bundle are to thank for that.
Gaming on Linux may never quite match what Windows has to offer, but I can confidently say that Linux has now become a viable gaming platform. I haven't had to boot into Windows for a gaming session for, hmmm let me think, at least 5 months now.
That depends on whether the XBMC foundation are dicks and prevent Debian from applying security patches to the Debian packaged version of Kodi.
Well, no, she is very much being labelled as sexist in the media because of those remarks. Not that I'm sympathetic to her, but the media have gone somewhat overboard with it.
When you look at the whole conversation in context, it was obviously said flippantly. Had a male politician said the same thing, paraphrased appropriately, it would still be flippant, and in equally poor taste. I'm sure the media would also parade his comments in exactly the same way. No difference.
