(asciilifeform) billymg: however, some of these questions are making me reconsider the point of that particular guide. i meant it more as a beginner's intro into the basics of gentoo / portage config, but the resulting system won't be completely systemd-free by the time you get to installing xorg, etc. (will be free of "systemd" but not other "systemdisms", such as tmpfiles)
(asciilifeform) TomServo: asciilifeform: I'd like as much hygiene one could hope on a 'daily driver' with xorg - mainly no systemd and able to run a node.
(asciilifeform) TomServo: Beyond that, I wonder if the systemd wackamole is too much for my peabrain to handle. Running into the tmpfiles issue as well.

(trilema) phf: v19 most people agree was the pinnacle of old school emacs, making that the default though is entirely impractical since most of the elisp code has changed drastically since. moving forward along the versions is the movement from "pure emacs" towards a "systemd included" dwim monstrosity.

(trilema) asciilifeform: ought to be specific -- it's the mere fact that a binturd of name 'systemd' is present.

(trilema) erlehmann: also, any individual car using systemd and literally crashing because of it is unlikely to contain lennart.
(trilema) erlehmann: problem is timespan. systemd already could not handle an empty string and executed tasks for users named “0day” as root because names starting with numbers are hard, mmmkay?! it might take a long time before it collapses.
(trilema) mircea_popescu: famous moment of systemd sound engineering.
(trilema) mircea_popescu: that's kinda the point no systemd detractor ever made : that systemd is fundamentally and by itself an unstable arrangement, and it'll end up stuck systemding itself to death, very much like how the dnc keeps revolutionizing itself into irrelevancy.
(trilema) mircea_popescu: the problem with the systemd approach to system design is that everything ends up wanting to be its own master-exceptional-class.
(trilema) erlehmann: bonus: only affected program is systemd
