If I want my OS to do something...
That takes code.
If I want my OS to do more
That takes more code.
Seems that some people are unhappy about System D. I don't know enough to know if I like it or not, candidly.
Me neither, So I arbitrarily decide to be happy.":O}
It's not my favourite - I'm conscious of part of my resistance being simple inertia to change, but also that I've had problems getting it to start services dependably, in the right order, and actually be trusted to wait for one service to finish starting, before trying to start the dependent service.
Not a problem for single-user desktop machines, but when I have a headless box behind a TV 3000 miles away from where I am right now, that simply won't work if it's not started correctly, then my trust issues are justified.
Anyway, much of the 1.2 million lines comprises hardware files for udev, rather than actual, functional code. Even a systemd-free system like mine appreciates udev, and its rules.
See, Kaitain tells it like it is! He KNOWS about stuff that is above my head. Thank you Kaitain!
Watching your tv at home from 3000 miles away? Genius!
Well, I did try to do that once. I'd bought a cheap USB satellite decoder, compiled the necessary driver for the Raspberry Pi, and set up tvheadend accordingly. Unfortunately it highlighted two things:
i) there's nothing worth watching on telly
ii) the raspberry pi 2 isn't fast enough for the job.
What it's used for now is just a VPN server in a "safe" country (where "safe" means, doesn't needlessly censor). For it to work happily even through one particular country's filtering, I need to have a couple of things running besides OpenVPN, and due to some fun with port binding, they need to start in order, otherwise OpenVPN itself just fails to start. Quietly.
Here's an old one:
And, not to forget this guy:
Truly amazing! I agree there IS nothing to watch on tv, why in the world does it still exist? What a waste of energy alone.
Help! Help! The picture of the man who only drops turds from his mouth, there's no sound at all worth listening to. Ever.
Happy happy hippo!
You just gotta love the way Linux people express them selves!! ":O}
You must admit that attachment 18883 smells worse. According to that cloasters guy at any rate.
