Subject: [gentoo-user] gentoo-systemd-only deprecation
Date: Sun, 28 Jul 2013 08:22:10
1 William Hubbs closed bug #409385[1] as fixed, introducing
2 virtual/service-manager and adding it to the @system set, and dropping
3 OpenRC from baselayout's post dependencies.
5 Therefore, as of today, anyone can have a Gentoo machine with only
6 systemd, with no OpenRC installed. Since that was the raison d'être of
7 the gentoo-systemd-only overlay[2], I'm deprecating it soon.
9 If you install dracut you will also pull sysvinit (it's needed for
10 killall5, IIRC), and installing baselayout (instead of
11 systemd-baselayout) will make orphans of some systemd configuration
12 files (like /etc/vconsole.conf and /etc/machine-info); but I consider
13 those only minor problems, and I would strongly recommend to *anyone*
14 using my gentoo-systemd-only overlay to drop it and use the official
15 mechanism in the tree to install only systemd, replacing completely
16 OpenRC.
18 Also, without OpenRC we don't have /etc/init.d/ , but you
19 can use the alternatives provided in my overlay or in bug #373219[3].
20 I'm pretty sure someone will close that bug pretty soon.
22 Basically, systemd is now a first class citizen in Gentoo (on par with
23 OpenRC), and therefore there is no need at all for using my overlay.
24 Thanks to all the people who helped me with pull requests and
25 comments; the deprecation of the overlay is great news, since now it's
26 officially possible in Gentoo to ditch OpenRC and switch completely to
27 systemd.
29 Regards.
