systemd will provide builtin NTP capabilities according to this blog post.
Isn’t this the NTP daemon’s task?
Linux Kernel mailing list Post on how the Red Hat systemd gang managed to enforce their crap on Debian.
This is an interesting Linux init example with proof of concept code written in Ruby.
In this blog post I will go step by step showing what an init system must do to be functional. I will ignore all the legacy SysVinit stuff, and technical nuances, and just concentrate on what’s really important.
First of all, what is ‘
init‘? In it’s essence it’s a process that must be running at all times, if this process ends, the kernel enters into a panic mode, after which you cannot do anything else, except rebooting.
This process doesn’t need to do anything special, you can use
/bin/sh as your init, or even
/bin/yes (although the latter wouldn’t be very useful).
So let’s write our very first init.
