What GNU/Linux distros are out there that don't use systemd?

I know in Gentoo it's optional, but are there any other ones?

Slackware

and that's the list.

you sure showed me anon. It doesn't dismiss the fact that systemd does its job and does it good, it evolves as everything but it's being an elitist fuckwat to reject it.

How can I write a service file for systemd that doesn't write anything to the journal? But still runs.. Should be somewhere under [Service] but I don't know what to use..

Didn't like that one? Don't worry, here's another one:

http://blog.lusis.org/blog/2014/09/23/end-of-linux/

What systemd should be: "Let's make a modern replacement for sysvinit"

What systemd has become: "Let's build a system that will not only replace sysvinit but which will also manage your entire system from the ground up, and why not, let's stick in there a word processor in case you want to edit something while your initramfs is being initialised and let's make another module that can say "Hi, Jedi master" while it offers to walk your dog... And it's ALL gonna be integrated within a single place. So no more having different small subsystems that do very well one single task: let's have a do-it-all abomination that exposes a gigantic attack surface to find system vulnerabilities and that also brings back hundreds of bugs that we had managed to remove from Linux and sysvinit years, if not decades, ago. And you know what's gonna be the best part of it? We're gonna shove it everyone's throat so they don't have a fucking choice whether they want to stay as they are or actually embrace it. Yup, it's gonna be amazing, guys."
>>
>>45268628

It doesn't even have a clear definition of what its job is.

>>45268881
I like the fact how PID1 only uses less than 2MB of memory to manage all of that.

So? Just X alone uses 10 times the memory, why not bitch about that HUGE ATTACK SURFACE?
Oh yeah, because X isn't made by a guy that called all of you talentless faggots, and he's right.
>>
>>45268881
systemd's PID1 code is as small as possible, and the old shit systemd is also meant to replace like polkit is a thousand times as ugly as systemd is.
>>
>>45268951
X is a huge attack surface, and people -- including Unix's authors -- have been railing against all manner of aspects of X for decades.
>>
>>45268951
If someone would want to force everyone to use X, including servers with absolutely no need of it, a lot of people would bitch about it.

Nobody's forcing you to use systemd either, there's still server distros like slackware and gentoo running sysvinit

In other words, Freedesktop made a problem for itself which it is now attempting to fix by reimplementing various fetid pieces of shit in one suite of uberdaemons.

But sysvinit and it's lackeys could never hope to fit in that limited space.

Yes with every distribution you can just format everything and install Slackware.

>>45269159

yes it is

>>45269184

BSD is maintained, but in true *unix fashion it's only updated when it needs to be. If you need some specific, modern feature add it yourself.
>>
>>45269079

*BSD doesn't have a quarter of the amount of software GNU/Linux has. For commonplace server stuff *BSD is fine (perhaps even better than GNU/Linux) but as soon as you try to pull something a bit more obscure, you'll soon find yourself in a dead alley.

The only thing we ask for is being given the alternative to get systemd or not, as much as we do with DEs or WMs. I personally think systemd goes against everything Linux (and UNIX) is supposed to be: lean, modular and simple.

Also, does anyone know if any of the FOSS GNU/Linux distros have systemd or sysvinit? I'm talking about Trisquel, Parabola...

so? the software it does have works fine

it has a browser, a word processor, a spreadsheet maker, a broswer, an IDE, etc. What else do you need?

I only bring up BSD because it's a systemD thread, and BSD doesn't use systemD

Don't get so excited there, m8. I consider myself a traditional UNIXtard yet I don't care that much about systemd so as to spend all day crying about it or worse (http://news.softpedia.com/news/Developer-Leaves-Debian-Systemd-Maintainer-Team-After-Constant-Attacks-465081.shtml).

I was just asking for alternative distros that at least give me the chance to decide whether I want it or not. I like Arch Linux a lot anyway and I don't think I'm gonna stop using it just because they adopted systemd. There are so many other things I like about Arch that I'm not willing to give it up just for one bad thing, however relevant it might be.
>>
>>45269559
I said many, not all, which is still correct unless a lot of people had a change of heart overnight.

That's the great thing about foss. No one can force you to do things you don't want to do.

No one can force you to use systemd, just like how you can't force people to maintain legacy systems like sysvinit.

So in Debian it's optional, right?

>>45269686
Yes and no: since Debian's upgrade pace is so slow you can still find modern versions of Debian having sysvinit, but I don't think it's gonna remain that way for the upcoming versions.
>>
>>45269724
Didn't they at least agree that it'll be init agnostic?

Why is everyone so desperate to shove this shit down people's throats?

Nothing runs on BSD.

I'm using it on desktop right now.
Okay actually it's a Thinkpad that's sitting on a desk, but that's close enough. ;-)
Haven't used Linux on desktop for about 10 years. I can do everything with BSD. You're wrong to think that open-source code doesn't get ported by FreeBSD & friends. If it's open-source and useful, it gets ported.
>>
>>45269767
I bet you're enjoying your 20 minute battery life.
>>
>>45269219
You sound like you haven't seen BSD since early 90's. Modern BSD desktop is almost indistinguishable from Linux. Under the hood, it's different of course. There's no systemd for example. ;-) And the kernel and libc are different. The man pages are better, and so is the firewall. It's more cohesive because it's built as a whole, rather than bits and pieces slapped together half-ass.

Why would I enjoy a system with a obsolete init? You're silly, son.
>>
>>45269809

Last time I played with FreeBSD was this summer. I'll admit I've never used it extensively and, don't get me wrong, I like it a lot, but I don't know... I still feel it doesn't have so rich a software base as any of the the mainstream GNU/Linux distros do. For me it's very important to know that my distro has a large dev community backing it, even if I'm gonna use less than 1% of the software in the repositories. I guess it's a matter of taste.
>>

>with a obsolete init
sorry your English is incomprehensible

http://www.zdnet.com/linus-torvalds-and-others-on-linuxs-systemd-7000033847/

Linus Torvalds himself says he has no strong opinions about it, yet the only thing he points out about it is a negative one.

However it isn't true what that article says: I use Ubuntu 14.04 and I rarely have to restart the system due to recently installed upgrades, unless they're really critical ones, like a new kernel image or something like that.

>>45270131
The fuck are you talking about m8. Ubuntu has had sytemd since 13.04

http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=ubuntu

Also, Ubuntu is the less Linuxy Linux distro there is. I want to stay away from it even more than from systemd.
>>
>>45268319
systemd is so much cleaner and more efficient than sysvinit. This is really a comparison between a pile of poorly hacked together shell scripts to a professionally written C codebase

An init script runs once, who gives a shit about the performance? It's better than a bloated as fuck PID 1 running all the time and can potentially bring your whole system down, and also requires crap like dbus runnning all the time.

There's zero support for systemd on Slackware.
