axl,

Gentoo is LFS with a package manager. You use Gentoo, thats portage and the ebuild repositories you choose, to make your very own distro.

As has already been said, some choices force other choices. Things depending on systemd is only one example.
You might want to use clang as your system compiler. That restricts you to things that will build with clang.
There are many others.

As always, to extend your choice ... patches are welcome. Well, that may not be true. The upstreams also have limited resources, so they may not accept your patch.

You wear the tag of a developer. Would you share you personal phone number or email address to hold your claim?

Share upon the other good developer how you accomplished all those miracles. and then have a million people ask you questions. go on. your claim is as good as your personal info. you have to teach people how to do it.

What are you ranting on about?it is very easy to have a systemd free system. Latest OpenRC, latest kernel latest desktop environment. You are claiming this isn't possible but you offer no proof

Hitchens' razor: the burden of proof or onus in a debate lies with the claim-maker, and if he or she does not meet it, the opponent does not need to argue against the unfounded claim

axl,

You start with the OpenRC stage3 and choose a profile without Gnome or systemd in its name.
Its that easy.

To demand that from me is as good as demanding proof from a random person that the sky is blue while you're both outside.

If it is so easy... why do you guys need changes in portage tree?

Any of you open rc folks want to post how many custom files they have in /etc/portage to obtain that systemd free system?

i know it can be done. but ... why?

Merged above 7 posts out of SystemD free system/gentoo due to the drift towards politics.

Tony0945,

That's where we are today.
Gentoo is portage and the ::gentoo repository. Everything else is upstream.

This fork would be an overlay, much as other derivative distros are overlays rather than forks.

In that case my overlays are the fork. I'll make them public if there is more interest than the five other people that I've counted.
OTOH, if at least three of these five (and I greatly respect the work of all of them in the support topics) would assist me in ebuild update, I'll do it.

Sure, here's my list
Code:
grep -R systemd /etc/portage
/etc/portage/make.conf:INSTALL_MASK="/usr/lib/systemd /etc/systemd /lib/systemd /usr/lib/modules-load.d"
/etc/portage/make.profile/systemd/parent:../../../../../targets/systemd

Tony, I don't mind helping whatever way I can.



Re. axl, et al, I don't run a systemd system at all, and it's not that hard.
I've hard masked openrc at an early version to avoid (hubbs sys-d intrusions) and so far no problems.
I run "-introspection -hal -kde -gnome -pam -consolekit -policykit -systemd -udisks" in make.conf that throws away a lot of sys-d and/or gnome stuff.
My mask is 'INSTALL_MASK="/usr/lib/systemd/"'

I don't run kde as I've never cared for their desktop.
I haven't run gnome since gnome2, as I despise gnome3 desktop.
I don't run any kde or gnome apps as they pull in tons of other libraries and I don't need them, there are alternative progs or earlier versions without the tie-ins.

Having said this, if you want to run gnome, then you'll have to work much harder to get rid of sys-d stuff.
And going forward there's no guarantee that tomorrow gtk+3.* won't try and tie in sys-d.

the pro systemd and the anti-systemd lot are all just as bad as each other and frankly ignoring them is the best option.

It's kind of hard to ignore it when the drama comes spilling into OTW. Besides, I'm on my lunch break and I'm bored. Really bored.

I agree with you there :) but you know the usuals... if you are not vocally vitriolically dismissing it you must be pro it. for all the whining none of them did anything... the closest there has been in doing anything was the mini-audit I did AND that is saying something

This forum needs a facepalm emote...
