Re: Ubuntu 16.04 - And the rest.... Poettering 'd for years and still bending over.

And I won't remove my rambling. But I give my opology to all that might have read this. I'ts not my normal self that says things...

Re: Ubuntu 16.04 - And the rest.... Poettering 'd for years and still bending over.

I'm doing my best to say my peace and be gone. But so far, I've done nothing but complain. Okay, here is an immediate fix, It's not hard, it's all the same. For all installers. Old deb, buntu, etc.... under advanced term or graphical advanced give the option to install the following: 1) sysvinit 2) ...

Re: Ubuntu 16.04 - And the rest.... Poettering 'd for years and still bending over.

Every gizmo is a file is what we look to do. Always question those that turn flat file based information into binary. It's a serious mistake if you do not. If you cannot read it, and they can, it's wrong. It's wrong on so many levels. It takes your power to understand away and gives it to those that...

Re: Ubuntu 16.04 - And the rest.... Poettering 'd for years and still bending over.

Clem, Please do your own completely. Linux Mint was a savior to most during the time it was created. I'ts now time to do away with Redhat, Poettering, any and all. It's time we have /etc/inittab and know it's going to be there along with all basic linux which is what many are accustomed to. We can h...

Re: Ubuntu 16.04 - And the rest.... Poettering 'd for years and still bending over.

Hi Fred, Running arch again... of course we know we can install openrc on any linux. Not the question. Ubuntu's docs show to install as "sudo apt-get install" , quite familiar with debian and synaptic, aptitude etc.... But just as was, it is again. Remember just a revision or two back when it was th...

Re: Ubuntu 16.04 - And the rest.... Poettering 'd for years and still bending over.

Just a couple corrections.... One, the AUR repositories of Arch Linux nas nothing to do with the repositories of eudev (openrc) . The original authors of openrc is that of Gentoo Linux devel. Nothing else. What I intended upon authoring in this thread wasn't anything at all to do with "distros" in w...

Re: Ubuntu 16.04 - And the rest.... Poettering 'd for years and still bending over.

Two installs, one devuan and the other lmde2.
Both installed openrc. The two named here are
fine if you are wanting to go this route.
I hope we continue to have these choices.
ubuntu and it's derivatives had openrc as
well up until now.

Re: Ubuntu 16.04 - And the rest.... Poettering 'd for years and still bending over.

No, actually Fred I didn't know that. I went back to debian whom switched over, and then to arch where eudev repositories were available for scratch builds. I liked gentoo as well over the years and in my view they did well with openrc devel. It's just so intuitive to use. But this is interesting on...

Re: Ubuntu 16.04 - And the rest.... Poettering 'd for years and still bending over.

Simply put, there are many whom like openrc, and those too that continue to work with sysvinit.
This isn't an openrc vs other init systems debate. I will assure you that openrc is quite capable
and doesn't hook into my junk to get a job done. If it were there with 16.04, I wouldn't be here.

"Package openrc is not available, but is referred to by another package.

Re: Ubuntu 16.04 - And the rest.... Poettering 'd for years and still bending over.

Hi Fred, Arch uses whatever you like. I prefer openrc and it's not a big deal to get the job done to get it installed and working right. Sorry if this sounds confusing to some. But yes. The request is that Linux Mint, Debian, and Ubuntu provide for those that know better than systemD. I post because...

Re: We need a serious evlauation of the LMDE "rolling releas

"now, do you really have any issue to report?" Thanks for the ideas, and yes I do. Yes. It's an issue zero. Bottom line it's more like 1360 to be updated after an iso install and grows by the day. But what's a few hundred more packages? Suggestions for fixes? Sure. 1) Roll out the new iso's first p...

We need a serious evlauation of the LMDE "rolling release".

Just tried to do an update from the extremely old LMDE iso that is listed and never updated. It's a joke. You cannot get a decent upgrade of 1001 packages with an iso so outdated that it looks like slackware 1. Might we please have updated iso's so the many hours of work it takes to upgrade are not ...

Re: Touchpad Does Not Scroll

Type of pad? Chipset of pad? any further reference would be helpful. To be quite honest, I too have had these issues over the years and figured them out by knowing what typepad or hardware chip was driving known issue. In other words, this is the norm. If you have something not working, the best you...
