As many might be aware there’s a raging topic going on in linux world about systemd.
Also, Calculate, being a Gentoo based, many must be familiar about Gentoo’s in-house solutions that replace systemd, mainly:
When I tried Calculate it was using openrc but that was a while ago when udev wasn’t playing dirty games yet.
But some Gentoo based distros such as Sabayon adopted systemd.
I wanted to know what’s Calculate official position on this issue?
Does Calculate offer either option that work in a seamless manner?
Is Calculate+eudev+openrc possible from the installer?
We are opposed to systemd. At the moment, we use udev, because it does not require dependencies on systemd.
I’m a longterm Gentoo user looking at Calculate to recommend for others. udev now seems to have either aligned with or joined systemd which I regard it as an unnecessary and badly-designed modification of a critical system component.
I’ve just started building a new installation - something I do every year or two - and found that installing eudev:
emerge -av eudev
was fast, painless and fixed the problems created by udev which was in the original Stage 3 tarball.
emerge automatically removes udev, and I left ‘net.ifnames=0’ in the kernel invocation without generating any error messages.
