I posted as there I was aware this is something people here feel strongly about. I need to read more in to what the options are though. I am not exactly sure what the overall solution is to the question of which system should be used, but I do agree that we need to maintain the support for init systems so we maintain the freedom to choose.

they did the same thing in 2014.

before debian makes decisions that could possibly destroy them forever, they like to have a little pomp and bureaucracy so as to pretend they give a shit what anybody thinks.

like with brexit, if the resolution is to not make ibm/redhat systemd the king of debian and ruler over all other decisions, they will have this resolution again in a few years. or months. imo they should just pack up debian and tell people "just use red hat" since that seems to be the trajectory theyve stayed on for half a decade. who are we kidding here? in short order theyve gone from the "universal operating system" to the "international business system." what a sad joke, and what a bunch of traitors have destroyed debian forever. its all based on lies and circular arguments-- first they spend months trying to stop people from helping resolve the issues, then they say "lets stop doing this, no one bothered to step up and fix this." the whole process is a fucking sham, a fraud, a fucking con. so are the people driving this, fuck them. let them lie to your faces.


And here I was, super-confused about the fact that a server I upgraded from stretch to buster just this morning told me that there are 43 updated packages right now... :)



#UN


has many flaws and very few virtues. the legacy media is totally silent about this flaw.


Sharing this,, as it needs to be exposed as wide as possible. On here at least we can do that without repercussions from those who seek to condone and cover it all up.

Kali Linux - Pen testing is this using system V


I have just installed Kali Linux, looking at the documentation page at

https://docs.kali.org/general-use/starting-metasploit-framework-in-kali

it says to start postgres SQL use

service postgresql start

this looks more like System V rather than SystemD, am I right here?

If it was sytemD I am sure it would be something like systemctl postgressql start.

All installed nicely, I really need to get to grips with SHA256Sums though.





LibreOffice is getting some great new features thanks to Google Summer of Code students. Here's Muhammet Kara explaining more at a recent event in Ankara, Turkey: https://blog.documentfoundation.org/blog/2019/11/12/event-report-google-summer-of-code-presentation-in-ankara-turkey/
GSoS presentation

still waiting for a 32bit fork of libreoffice, but openoffice still offers 32bit--

so i suppose a libre fork of 32bit openoffice would also work. meanwhile, the latest libreoffice does not (will not likely ever) run on this operating system. im sure its great though, and i hope people running 64bit systems enjoy it.

I will have a look at this, as they also seem to do Minecraft servers which is good. Nice to see someone hosting Gopher stuff too, still a few servers out there and you can still install Gopher clients in GNU / Linux.
