I don't think you understand their problem. LFS doesn't need systemd because it is efficient. If you ever look at the scripts from RH, you'll find that they are quite complex. That's because they try to cover every complex variation of every possible kernel module or program that runs at the system level. That takes a couple of minutes. OTOH, LFS takes about 10 seconds. A complex startup, maybe 15. Actually, after working with systemd for a while, I think it is sorta elegant in it's own complex way. If they had just kept things separate instead of one huge conglomeration, then I think it would have had a lot better general acceptance. -- Bruce -- http://linuxfromscratch.org/mailman/listinfo/blfs-dev FAQ: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/faq.html Unsubscribe: See the above information page
