Remember those in the #systemd wars that said "boot speed doesn't matter on servers"?

Here is one example from #lkml why they were wrong: #Microsoft is working on a #linux #kernel feature to reboot servers in <1s with the help of persistent memory (pmen): lore.kernel.org/lkml/201904201…

init: the software that first launches on boot on Linux.

Please vote if you can!

They have added a forum poll about init system used on MX Linux. systemd (yep, it is written non-capitalized) is now a very widely used option for this but it divides people's opinions.

A systemd flash from the past!


Rethinking PID 1
While I started off with much resistance to systemd, like most folks, I have to admin that I like it more in more as I dive deeper in to it. Many people have legitimate gripes with it, no doubt - I still haven't totally convinced myself that timers are better than cron in all situations - but many others seem to just hate that which is different than they are accustom to. Here's a great blog post by systemd's creator, Lennart Poettering, wrote near just after the inception of systemd. It's interesting and I find it hard to not agree with his logic and reasoning for systemd, just maybe not every point on implementation. That said, him and those who have worked on the project have really moved desktop GNU/Linux forward, I'm not even using it on my servers, and they just generally gave us a far more modern init system. At least, this is my humble opinion. I know many will disagree, and that's okay. The 'me' from a couple years back disagreed as well.... show more

I'm creating a complete backup of the snapshot (file by file) with the #Borgbackup, which decreases the amount of data typically to some MB per day. I'm not shutting down the DB which is indead not best practice .. So if somebody ask me, I'd suggest shutting the db down (on the snapshot of course ;D ) before creating a backup.

I wrote some little helpers (for #systemd and #docker), which you can find here https://github.com/nupplaphil/borg-backup-docker-lvm-systemd


 
SALIX. Linux for the lazy Slacker.... Salix is a GNU/Linux distribution based on Slackware that is simple, fast and easy to use,with stability being a primary goal.Salix is also fully backwards compatible with Slackware,so Slackware users can benefit from Salix repositories,which they can use as an "extra" quality source of software for their favorite distribution.Like a bonsai,Salix is small, light & the product of infinite care.
one application per task on the installation ISO
fully backwards compatible with Slackware
optimized for desktop usage
high quality package repositories with dependency support
incredibly fast package tools
simple & fully localized system administration tools
nice artwork
supports 32-bit and 64-bit architectures

@Josh Sabboth shared this talk about #systemd at linux.conf.au this january:

...and i really like it. lasts more than 45 min, but it's time well spent for people like me who know there has been or is some type of religious war going on re. systemd, but haven't really followed the arguments in detail.

Broken by design: systemd....More SystemD Follies....Posted on 31 Oct 2018 by E.M.Smith...
Here’s an interesting article by an experienced Systems Admin saying he is done with SystemD. I find the “honesty” in it refreshing 😉

Linux user? Check those patches! Public exploit published for systemd security holes…A recent bug in a very widely used Linux system tool called systemd has just been turned into a published exploit by a US cybersecurity company called Capsule8.
The systemd project is a large, complex and popular – but also controversial – toolkit used by many mainstream Linux distros to handle system startup and logging.

Now I did manual #backup with #borgbackup for a while, the next step is to look into atomizing it with #systemd or #cron (depending on the system).

(no comments about how bad systemd is, I like to use it.)

Understanding the Red Hat Enterprise Linux random number generator interface


January 30, 2019
Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos
Like other operating systems, Red Hat Enterprise Linux provides a cryptographically-secure pseudo-random number generator (CSPRNG) as part of our kernel. It is intended to be used by cryptographic back-ends and applications requiring cryptographic operations. Unfortunately, there is much mystery around the interfaces provided. While the new random(7) manual page does clarify some aspects, it does not fully address all common questions. In this post, we will make a brief overview of these interfaces, starting from their initialization to their use.

Note that, this post will not get into the internals of a CSPRNG. We will go through these interfaces, intentionally staying on the high-level, without considering internal details, and discuss their usefulness for an application or librar

Linux Lite 4.2


I kinda miss my old #linuxlite. There's a lot not to like about it (#systemd, the #Ubuntu base), and I would never dare use any Ubuntu-based #Linux distro without the added "aftermarket" safeguards that a former LinuxLite developer made and maintains to protect LL users from that weird upstream beta crap.

Yet there's a lot that I miss about my old distro, too. The super-ultra-mega "newbie friendliness" of the distro. The very helpful and enthusiastic community, which happens to include a lot of users of my current daily driver, #MX-Linux. The exquisite ease of installation, the highly specialized #Xfce4 desktop, the cool tool set. Without the added safety stuff from unlockforus I wouldn't use it, but for total #noobs coming from #Windows or #Mac, I think it beats even #Linux-Mint for introducing new users to #desktop Linux.

So I'm torrenting it today and I'll probably dual-boot it with MX-18, and create a custom LinuxLite-Plus+Unlockme iso to share with new users.

Why do the #systemd units of one of my #Arch #Linux #Server log in journal and the others don't? Two servers, both Arch Linux, on one stdout and errout are redirected to journalctl on the other journalctl is empty, except for system reboot messages.
Any idea?
