My excitement level is very high right now. @PINE64
Was reminded of this today. Thought I would share it (again) https://www.instagram.com/p/B5xeGGpnU9H/?igshid=1dlqqz0275bw7
Understanding systemd #1
Contrary to popular belief #systemd is not just an init system. Take everything you know about older init systems and throw it out the window, that's what the systemd devs did anyway.
Init is one part of systemd but it also does things like process management, application resource management, cgroup implementations, containerization, networking, device management, etc.
I personally call it a full management layer.
For those that don't know I work at Red Hat. I do support and my primary focus is on systemd.
As there's a massive misunderstanding across the board with #systemd, from what it actually is to how do I properly create unit files, I was thinking of trying to do kind of a recommendations and explanations one toot at a time.
So if anyone has questions or would like explanations please let me know.
Honestly if anyone's gonna solve the impossible programming problem of the century, it's not gonna be a silicon valley startup looking to optimise their subscription-based ingredient delivery service, it's gonna be the guy who makes dwarf fortress because one day he decided to try and implement something like randomly generated recessive genetic disorders in sheep
