What is the easiest way to install systemd?

Hi, I really like Your distro, but I really miss it, full of happiness popular and exciting systemd.
I loved when my system hangs while shutting down, love message, like: "A stop job is running for...",

And he's a good companion, and can easily solve the problem when nothing else to do. With systemd there is always something to do!
After all, systemd to take care of my health when I want to restart the computer which is far away from me, he will hang him and I will definitely have to raise my ass and go to my computer, because the walk is very good for your health.
No idea how I will live and miss the beloved systemd! Tell me how to install it here?!!11

Re: What is the easiest way to install systemd?

I had installed Devuan (ASCII) as a test system on my laptop, but had kept my desktop as stable, running Debian, until after one update, on boot-up, systemd decided that it didn't like the location of some configuration file. Now what do you think that it would do about this alleged problem? Invite me to move it? Move it for me? No, it refused to boot at all, thus providing me with no chance to do anything about it! I had to find a bootable USB stick, which probably didn't have systemd, and then hack into the file system and move the file. That finally decided that my stable system was going to move to Devuan (Jessie). It has been much more stable since then.

I think it is 'designed' to be faulty, so that RH can sell you a support contract/package & make money out of Linux. wink

Re: What is the easiest way to install systemd?

I just don't understand these Devuan graybeards. Why would anybody would want to setup shutdown jobs this way:

# This goes in /etc/init.d/hook-for-my-shutdown-jobs
[ "$1" = "stop" ] && /opt/scripts/my-shutdown-jobs

When one can can do it this way instead:

# This goes in /etc/systemd/system/hook-for-my-shutdown-jobs
[Unit]
Description=Run shutdown scripts

[Service]
Type=oneshot
RemainAfterExit=true
ExecStart=/bin/true
ExecStop=/opt/scripts/my-shutdown-jobs

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

Making even trivial tasks complex makes me feel smart.

Well that is the Microsoft system for success, just look at the AWESOME and ginormous support/antivirus/repair industry they spawned. wink

You can really see the commercialism shine when they wax poetic about "branding" and removing configuration options so all the dumb people will finally HAVE TO DO IT THEIR WAY WHICH IS OF COURSE THE RIGHT WAY!

I would love it if our schools did this:

Teacher: okay class what is proprietary software good for?

Class:  SPYWARE!

Teacher: That's Correct!



ah well, one can dream... heh.

Spot on.

Red Hat is throwing out the money for corporate hackers to ruin Linux.

It's not "just" systemd alone, by the way. How many drones are working on
Gnome 3 and KDE 5? And now compare KDE 5 to KDE 3 and tell me how
many free hackers remained from the KDE 3 days. You can actually read
up on many similar user stories how KDE 3 was the last good KDE and
then things constantly worsened over time, with pointless gimmicks and
shiny flashy but useless widgets.

I understand that these greedy corporate hackers want to generate revenue
but this comes at the cost of people using Linux as a whole.

/etc/systemd/system/hook-for-my-shutdown-jobs

I wonder on a commercial server, that RH services, do they charge for removing this "feature"?

Hey, watch it with those gray beard jokes.

Re: What is the easiest way to install systemd?

Isn't the answer to the question 'just use any Debian related operating system'?

'Good afternoon sirs, I would like a Debian operating system with systemd on it that isn't Debian and doesn't have systemd on it but with systemd on it.'
