[systemd-devel] systemd as a docker process manager

This is a followup to this thread: https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/systemd-devel/2015-July/033585.html To see if there are any new developments. We have multi-process application that already uses systemd successfully. Our customers want to put the application into a container and that

Hi, On the CentOS7 AWS with the following systemd installed: systemd-219-42.el7_4.4.x86_64 Any loginctl command that we try to run at boot time (during the AWS "user data" section of cloud-init), will hang and then timeout. The same loginctl command run after you ssh into the box and

Hi, More questions about the systemd user service. Inside a script running as root, I want to control another user's service. I have found two ways to do this: systemd-run -t --setenv=XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/user/ --uid= systemctl --user ... or: su -l -c "XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/user/

pam_limits is not used by systemd-user. I find it odd that two major distros differ in this behavior. On Mon, Nov 20, 2017 at 9:23 AM, Lennart Poettering <lenn...@poettering.net> wrote: > On Mo, 20.11.17 09:20, Jeff Solomon (jsolomon8...@gmail.com) wrote: > > > Lennart, > >

Hi, Two questions. I want to raise the "number of files" limits for the user instance. First, I set DefaultLimitNOFILE to something higher than the global system default in /etc/systemd/user.conf and I rebooted. Then I confirmed that the setting has taken effect: "systemctl --user show"

or exactly the reason you specify Michael. The user@.service file might change and we want to make use of it immediately. Also, we're only using lingering, so logging out and in doesn't apply to us. On Fri, Nov 17, 2017 at 3:16 PM, Michael Chapman <m...@very.puzzling.org> wrote: > On Sat

Hi, RHEL removed support for systemd "user services" because they said: "Basically we don't know if systemd --user will stay in systemd as is right now. So we have decided to disable it completely so we will not hit regression in future versions of centos." That statement was made 18 months

Hi, I would like to use a user service (systemctl --user) with systemd on RHEL7 where it has been deliberately removed. I've communicated with the RH dev who made this change who reported that I could restore the /lib/systemd/system/user@.service file and mostly everything would work. I don't
