Well, the way I see it, "systemd" is like the smell of urine in the subway: it's there, it isn't going away, and you have to deal with it.

They all have something, either a spinning disk or an SSD (typically 32

or 64 GB). Obviously it's doable ... there are even people running
Windows (cursed be its name forever) on them. Maybe I will experiment

32-bit, maybe? 64-bit win8 takes 40gb disk just for the base install. it's hard to do much of anything useful with <250gb of storage these days.

Yea, all I do with the W81 installation in that 50G partition of my vaio pro is boot it now and then, ugrade it, shut it down again ;-)

Just re-subscribed to the Slackware cd mailer.  I recently installed the latest version to a VM, and the installer was .... exactly the same as I remember it (thankfully).  I know they have to swallow the blue pill at some point with smegma systemd, but that point has not yet arrived.

CentOS 7 is the first time I've started installing a Linux operating system and thought, "WTF?! Why did they hire away developers from Microsoft to build this?"

The installer is unintuitive, looks like it was designed for a tablet, does stupid things, and breaks easily.
D'accord! With 6.x you were able to create a RAID and then create the mount points using LVM. Now, it is either RAID or LVM. I could have used Gentoo if I wanted to create vgs et al. manually! Also, you can not use openvpn@mypersonalvpn with systemd easily and out of the box, due to a bug that is as old as systemd itself. You need manually fiddle around in order to get it going. I can not believe that RHEL is buttraping its userbase in this way.
Then they ship samba4, I think "Yay! AD support", but no, it is disabled, since samba4 needs heimdal and RHEL is waiting for the port to kerberos. Fuck that, almost everything but openssl can use heimdal too, and I guess it is easier and more likely to fix openssl than samba4. Why is it ok to shove systemd down everyones throat but not heimdal? Makes no sense to me. Also, were did the "it is about choice!!!!1111" go?
Happy holidays, btw.

I was a big fan of ArchLinux, but lately, I have been having more and more problems related to systemd.  It is like having to learn a whole new operating system to just figure out how that thing works.  The earlier comment about openvpn not working just adds to the frustration.  What ever happened to the motto of "Do one thing and do it well"

I think I am going to switch to Slackware for the same reason, I switched to ArchLinux a few years ago.

 ...I think I am going to switch to Slackware for the same reason, I switched to ArchLinux a few years ago.

Keep in touch about your conversion!  Another bit about Slackware is, at least I could drive over and buy Pat some lunch on an afternoon off.  Not that it would come to that.  I did have an email exchange back with him in 1999-2000 or so about the exclusion of PAM.  I was given ample room for rebuttal .  There was later the "extras" packages that made most packages that required PAM work on Slackware possible as well.  I think P.V. would avoid a bad decision for the Slackware distro and try to patch around it (much like PAM), if at all possible.

It it still possible to use Gentoo without PAM and without systemd. I rarely have use for PAM on single user systems or servers, so I have no clue why it is default on all systems.

I have made use if PAM on a Centos 6.5, in order to plug Citadel into an ssl enbabled LDAP server: Citadel used PAM for its users, Centos used nslcd to pull LDAP into PAM. This is really some arcane satanic ritual and might brake from update to update. Sometimes a reboot fixed it, sometimes I needed to change one line in a config file. There also seems to be a more modern way to do that, via some sssd service, or whatever. Never got that up and running.

                    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
                     Version 3,  29 June 2007

 Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. []


  The GNU General Public License is a license for open source software,
which in this document is referred to as "free software."             

  The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed
to take away your freedom to share and change the works.  By contrast,
the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to
share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free
software for all its users.  We, the Free Software Foundation, use the 
GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to
any other work released this way by its authors.  You can apply it to  
your programs, too.                                                    

  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you 
want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new 
free programs, and that you know you can do these things.            

  To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you
these rights or asking you to surrender the rights.  Therefore, you have
certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if
you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others.      

  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same 
freedoms that you received.  You must make sure that they, too, receive
or can get the source code.  And you must show them these terms so they
know their rights.                                                    

  Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps:
(1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License
giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.   

  For the developers' and authors' protection, the GPL clearly explains
that there is no warranty for this free software.  For both users' and
authors' sake, the GPL requires that modified versions be marked as   
changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to 
authors of previous versions.                                         

  Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run
modified versions of the software inside them, although the manufacturer
can do so.  This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim of         
protecting users' freedom to change the software.  The systematic      
pattern of such abuse occurs in the area of products for individuals to
use, which is precisely where it is most unacceptable.  Therefore, we  
have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those
products.  If such problems arise substantially in other domains, we   
stand ready to extend this provision to those domains in future versions
of the GPL, as needed to protect the freedom of users.                 

  Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents.
States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of   
software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to
avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could 
make it effectively proprietary.  To prevent this, the GPL assures that
patents cannot be used to render the program non-free.                

  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
modification follow.                                           

                       TERMS AND CONDITIONS

  0. Definitions.

  "This License" refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.

  "Copyright" also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of
works, such as semiconductor masks.                                     

  "The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
License.  Each licensee is addressed as "you".  "Licensees" and    
"recipients" may be individuals or organizations.                  

  To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an
exact copy.  The resulting work is called a "modified version" of the  
earlier work or a work "based on" the earlier work.                    

  A "covered work" means either the unmodified Program or a work based
on the Program.                                                      

  To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without
permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for    
infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
computer or modifying a private copy.  Propagation includes copying,
distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
public, and in some countries other activities as well.             

  To "convey" a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
parties to make or receive copies.  Mere interaction with a user through
a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.      

  An interactive user interface displays "Appropriate Legal Notices"
to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2) 
tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License.  If
the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.           

  1. Source Code.

  The "source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work
for making modifications to it.  "Object code" means any non-source
form of a work.                                                   

  A "Standard Interface" means an interface that either is an official
standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of  
interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that 
is widely used among developers working in that language.            

  The "System Libraries" of an executable work include anything, other
than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of 
packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major     
Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that   
Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an   
implementation is available to the public in source code form.  A    
"Major Component", in this context, means a major essential component
(kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system  
(if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to    
produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.      

  The "Corresponding Source" for a work in object code form means all
the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable 
work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
control those activities.  However, it does not include the work's   
System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
which are not part of the work.  For example, Corresponding Source   
includes interface definition files associated with source files for 
the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically   
linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those 
subprograms and other parts of the work.                             

  The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users
can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding

  The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that
same work.                                                      

  2. Basic Permissions.

  All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated 
conditions are met.  This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
permission to run the unmodified Program.  The output from running a
covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
content, constitutes a covered work.  This License acknowledges your
rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.

  You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not
convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains
in force.  You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose
of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you
with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with
the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do 
not control copyright.  Those thus making or running the covered works
for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction  
and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of   
your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.       

  Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under
the conditions stated below.  Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10
makes it unnecessary.                                               

  3. Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.

  No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
11 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or     
similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such       

  When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention
is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to    
the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or 
modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work's   
users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid circumvention of  
technological measures.                                                

  4. Conveying Verbatim Copies.

  You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and     
appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
keep intact all notices stating that this License and any          
non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all 
recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.            

  You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.         

  5. Conveying Modified Source Versions.

  You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the   
terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:

    a) The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
    it, and giving a relevant date.                                  

    b) The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is
    released under this License and any conditions added under section
    7.  This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to    
    "keep intact all notices".                                       

    c) You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this
    License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy.  This
    License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7
    additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts,  
    regardless of how they are packaged.  This License gives no     
    permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not
    invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.  

    d) If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
    Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
    interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your   
    work need not make them do so.                                   

  A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an 
"aggregate" if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not  
used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users 
beyond what the individual works permit.  Inclusion of a covered work
in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other   
parts of the aggregate.                                             

  6. Conveying Non-Source Forms.

  You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms
of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the            
machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License,
in one of these ways:                                                

    a) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
    (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the 
    Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium        
    customarily used for software interchange.                     

    b) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
    (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a   
    written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as 
    long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product
    model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a 
    copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the     
    product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical   
    medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no 
    more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this     
    conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the                   
    Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.         

    c) Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the
    written offer to provide the Corresponding Source.  This        
    alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and
    only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord
    with subsection 6b.                                              

    d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
    place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
    Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
    further charge.  You need not require recipients to copy the     
    Corresponding Source along with the object code.  If the place to
    copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
    may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)  
    that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
    clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
    Corresponding Source.  Regardless of what server hosts the       
    Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is  
    available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.   

    e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided
    you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding    
    Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no  
    charge under subsection 6d.                                       

  A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be        
included in conveying the object code work.                           

  A "User Product" is either (1) a "consumer product", which means any
tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family,
or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation
into a dwelling.  In determining whether a product is a consumer product,
doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage.  For a particular
product received by a particular user, "normally used" refers to a      
typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status
of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user       
actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product.  A product
is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial 
commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent 
the only significant mode of use of the product.                        

  "Installation Information" for a User Product means any methods,
procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install
and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from
a modified version of its Corresponding Source.  The information must   
suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object 
code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because          
modification has been made.                                             

  If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as 
part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a  
fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the 
Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied 
by the Installation Information.  But this requirement does not apply
if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install    
modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has  
been installed in ROM).                                              

  The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates
for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for
the User Product in which it has been modified or installed.  Access to a
network may be denied when the modification itself materially and       
adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and
protocols for communication across the network.                         

  Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly      
documented (and with an implementation available to the public in     
source code form), and must require no special password or key for    
unpacking, reading or copying.                                        

  7. Additional Terms.

  "Additional permissions" are terms that supplement the terms of this
License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.     
Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
that they are valid under applicable law.  If additional permissions 
apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately  
under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by  
this License without regard to the additional permissions.           

  When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
it.  (Additional permissions may be written to require their own    
removal in certain cases when you modify the work.)  You may place  
additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work, 
for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.    

  Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of
that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:         

    a) Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the
    terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or                  

    b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
    author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal 
    Notices displayed by works containing it; or                     

    c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or
    requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in    
    reasonable ways as different from the original version; or        

    d) Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or
    authors of the material; or                                       

    e) Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some
    trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or                  

    f) Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that
    material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of
    it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for
    any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on
    those licensors and authors.                                       

  All other non-permissive additional terms are considered "further
restrictions" within the meaning of section 10.  If the Program as you
received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is 
governed by this License along with a term that is a further         
restriction, you may remove that term.  If a license document contains
a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this
License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms
of that license document, provided that the further restriction does 
not survive such relicensing or conveying.                           

  If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the        
additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating  
where to find the applicable terms.                                 

  Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions;       
the above requirements apply either way.                             

  8. Termination.

  You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
provided under this License.  Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third 
paragraph of section 11).                                           

  However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your
license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a)   
provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and
finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright
holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means 
prior to 60 days after the cessation.                                

  Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after 
your receipt of the notice.                                         

  Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
this License.  If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same  
material under section 10.                                           

  9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.

  You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or
run a copy of the Program.  Ancillary propagation of a covered work
occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance.  However,  
nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
modify any covered work.  These actions infringe copyright if you do
not accept this License.  Therefore, by modifying or propagating a  
covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.

  10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.

  Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
propagate that work, subject to this License.  You are not responsible
for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.         

  An "entity transaction" is a transaction transferring control of an
organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an 
organization, or merging organizations.  If propagation of a covered
work results from an entity transaction, each party to that         
transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever  
licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.       

  You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
rights granted or affirmed under this License.  For example, you may
not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of 
rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
(including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that 
any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.                 

  11. Patents.

  A "contributor" is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based.  The
work thus licensed is called the contributor's "contributor version".

  A contributor's "essential patent claims" are all patent claims
owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a          
consequence of further modification of the contributor version.  For 
purposes of this definition, "control" includes the right to grant   
patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of   
this License.                                                        

  Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to   
make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
propagate the contents of its contributor version.                   

  In the following three paragraphs, a "patent license" is any express
agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
(such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
sue for patent infringement).  To "grant" such a patent license to a 
party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a 
patent against the party.                                            

  If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone 
to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
publicly available network server or other readily accessible means, 
then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so     
available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the  
patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner 
consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
license to downstream recipients.  "Knowingly relying" means you have
actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
country that you have reason to believe are valid.                   

  If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties   
receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered 
work and works based on it.                                          

  A patent license is "discriminatory" if it does not include within
the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is        
conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are
specifically granted under this License.  You may not convey a covered
work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is 
in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment
to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying 
the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the      
parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory
patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work     
conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily 
for and in connection with specific products or compilations that    
contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement,  
or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.          

  Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may      
otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.          

  12. No Surrender of Others' Freedom.

  If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not 
excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot convey a
covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may
not convey it at all.  For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you
to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey  
the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this     
License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.          

  13. Use with the GNU Affero General Public License.

  Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
under version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License into a single
combined work, and to convey the resulting work.  The terms of this  
License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work,
but the special requirements of the GNU Affero General Public License,
section 13, concerning interaction through a network will apply to the
combination as such.                                                 

  14. Revised Versions of this License.

  The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
the GNU General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
address new problems or concerns.                                       

  Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the
Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU General
Public License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the  
option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered
version or of any later version published by the Free Software     
Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of the
GNU General Public License, you may choose any version ever published
by the Free Software Foundation.                                    

  If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future
versions of the GNU General Public License can be used, that proxy's
public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you
to choose that version for the Program.                              

  Later license versions may give you additional or different
permissions.  However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
later version.                                                    

  15. Disclaimer of Warranty.


  16. Limitation of Liability.

SUCH DAMAGES.                                                             

  17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.

  If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms, 
reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the    
Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a 
copy of the Program in return for a fee.

Eventually we'll all have to deal with systemd. By being a late adopter, though, perhaps you won't have to suffer through much of the initial suck.

hm, I've fuzzed with systemd fuckups 3 times in the last month, and I sort of don't like it.

while it seems to offer lots of debug abilities, I wasn't able to find the real cause of the failure.

 - dhcp on the router was dead, but wpa still working - laptop would hang 5 minutes to decide I could eventually live without network. (no, no NetworkFailureSystem or any other bullshit)

 - the $work workstation didn't have plymouth installed, but failed with red because of that. WTF?

 - installed it, still doesn't boot but drops me on the rescue shell.


I hope jessie is going to become the short livest debian release.

Subject: firewalld, the next hot shit after systemd

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I have been trying to get a network running at a clients side. After messing around for hours, my solution is this:

yum erase firewalld

yum install shorewall

My scenario: fileserver on lan, openvpn clients connecting via this server. My problem: vpn clients not able to access another (license) server on the lan.

I did not find one single conclusive howto for this setup, I managed to force the necessary rules for masquerading, accepting and forwarding on firewalld using the --direct option. This basically means I work around the whole firewalld by passing it true iptables syntax. What do I need a new firewall system for, if it only has unusable commands and no support for common options? The forwarding commands in firewalld are explicitly for forwarding ports, not complete network traffic. The masquerade options states that it is for masquerading, I did not try it since it had no further explanation. I only stumbled about other users having the same problem on the internet, no wiki, no howto with real world examples.

I installed shorewall, edited zones, interfaces, policy and masq files. Presto, everything up and running in under 5 minutes.

Now, who gets the bill for hours of messing with that pile of shit? Red Hat or my client?

For dedicated firewall systems, the up-and-coming contender seems to be VyOS []. It basically rose from the ashes after Vyatta took their ball and went home, and is true open source. Whereas pfsense and m0nowall give you FreeBSD to contend with, VyOS is built on Debian Linux/Linux.

Its configuration language is somewhat Juniper-like (including commit-confirm ftw!) and it's got all of the stuff you'd expect from a proper router, including protocols like OSPF and BGP. Best of all: NO WEB UI. If you're not smart enough to configure a firewall/router, you don't get to use it. And since it's built on Debian, you can bring in outside packages to add on to it if you want to.

I'm currently writing a REST API for it, for a specific work-related project.
So far it's been pretty good.

firewalld is the /etc/init.d/iptables replacement Centos7.

I was ok with the way iptables were handled on Centos6. This firewalld is an unbelievable mess.

Shorewall is something even an imbecile could configure. Dunno how secure it is compared to other stuff, but I only need masquerading and traffic routing.

hm, to be honest, never heard of firewalld - another F*ck poetering is trying to force on the rest of the world?

I used to use ferm as iptables frontend, nice syntax.

for shure is something to browse through before starting with ip and friends.

I use VyOS at home and at work in front of Virtual Development Lab. I really like the OpenVPN integration. I have had no stability issues which is more than I can say for some of our cicso equipment.

I don't think firewalld is a Poettering creation but it might as well be.

Really though, if iptables is the order of the day, it's a whole lot easier to just put your iptables commands into /etc/rc.d/rc.local and no system daemon will ever mess with them.

Dipping my toes into Linux recently, I felt a need to support systemd for starting some customer services. It was, initially, a major pain in the ass to figure out why something wasn't quite working correctly, but eventually I worked through the problem (the code was not quite working correctly, but system v approaches hid the issue), and got it to work reasonably well.

I'm still a little fuzzy about how it deals with dependencies... most specifically, the various names for various dependencies, which can be different depending on distributions... but I muddled through.

Philosophically, though, I don't like systemd. Unix has a tradition of 'do one thing, and do it well,' that systemd violates from what I can see. It feels to me as if systemd needs to be broken down into more discrete pieces that have a common api through which to communicate.
