When: 7:30p Oct 16, 2014
Ask JimK – directions on left are not correct. Suggest looking through email archives.
UPDATE: See link on left for directions to ALE Central Meetings.
A general discussion of systemd with no real focus other than to dispel myths and introduce the system to those who have had it forced upon them. Q&A will be taken, of course, if there is time.
There’s not a lot to say: for most people, it’s completely under the hood. For the rest, we’ll talk a bit about all that can be done with it:
> systemd journal
> D-Bus, KD-Bus, PolicyKit
> Easy service prototyping and development
> Virtual machines as system services
> And more!
