The State of ZFS On Linux

badkarmadayaccount Re:above, below, and at the same level. ZFS is eve (366 comments)

Except that LVM is a PITA, mixing with RAID makes it even more so, and the RAID is unaware of the actual used space, making RAID 5 or 6 very expensive, not to mention it cant assist FS level checksumming with restoring individual blocks, you need to fail the whole drive. Implementing network transparency at the block level is inefficient, but no other FS has ZFS connect functionality.

badkarmadayaccount Re:/etc/inittab (314 comments)

Cgroups wouldn''t work, unless you containerise the systemd process tree, in which case what do you gain?

GSOC Project Works To Emulate Systemd For OpenBSD

badkarmadayaccount Re:/etc/inittab (314 comments)

Standard init scripts across distributions and cgroups are something you want on a server, and relying on intelligent handling of missing dependencies is inadvisable IMHO.

GSOC Project Works To Emulate Systemd For OpenBSD

badkarmadayaccount Re:/etc/inittab (314 comments)

Why do you think all of systemds' functionality is in one process or binary? The damn thing spawns like Postfix, as it should, you can compile it without a lot of crap, see Debian.

Run Gentoo and STFU. Debian lobotomized systemd pretty good if you can take a compromise, look at the Technical Comitee findings, mentioned elsewhere.

New EU Rules Will Limit Vacuum Cleaners To 1600W

badkarmadayaccount Re:Do the math (338 comments)

I'm from Bulgaria. Yes, there are such situations, and usually the craziest people come precisely from there, even if they are not all that religious. Discouraging such situations should be government policy, it will save lots of money from mental health services, or it would if the government actually provided any. This place is a shit-hole, it's neighbors are as well. Don't come here unless you are buying a retirement home, on vacation, or want to get a good price on whores and drugs due to exchange rate.

ECS A530, Transmeta CPU - operating sytem advice

badkarmadayaccount badkarmadayaccount writes  |  more than 3 years ago

badkarmadayaccount writes "I have a friend proud new owner of such a machine, though it's loaded with XP SP3 — not exactly a justice to it. I am considering WinFLP, though I would like to put linux on it, I can't seem to find a userfriendly lightweight distro for it — Fedora kernel panics on boot, apparently an issue with a missing instruction in the CMS, and Ubuntu as well claims being an i686 distro. Maybe mint? But I don't think I can rely on my judgement for this — that's why I'm turning to you, slashdot."

A poem from last saturday

badkarmadayaccount badkarmadayaccount writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Let the cold and wet earth open its womb -
from chaos, into chaos, we fly.
Let the cold entropy freeze
and spread all my pain into
a thousand icy crystals - nevermore to exist
in my reality - nevermore to exist,
but as dissolving traces of life
unto the heat death of the universe.
Let the zero point fluctuations drown out
the beating of my broken heart -
past, present, and future -
maybe if it never was, and never will be
in this light cone,
the light fantastic -
the light beyond the darkness -
will shine and freeze the pain.
