    For many of us, our biggest beef with systemd is that it has no planned limitations to its scope. (This has already been discussed to death so I will try to be brief.) Let's look at the actual current code size. I just cloned the systemd Github repo (git clone and this is what I got:

        $ wc `find . \( -name \*.c -o -name \*.h \) -print`

  • Did I brick my system ? | 2021-06-03
    for each entry, I rebooted the system only to face a black screen! Couldn't use the keyboard, couldn't enter BIOS/firmware, couldn't boot anything from Pen drive, couldn't do anything. It just stays on the black screen. I googled a lot on the issue and came across this issue on systemd which talks about the chances of bricking the hardware if someone deletes UEFI variables (which is mounted rw by systemd as efivarfs under /sys/firmware/efi/efivars) by running, say rm -rf --no-preserve-root /). A lot of the complications are discussed there so can go through the whole thread if interested).

    If it is really slow there might be a wrong click angle/count used for your mouse. Here is how you could check/fix that:

    Okay let me briefly explain my problem. iio-sensor-proxy is not working for me. in the path "cd /lib/udev/hwdb.d/" are all the .hwdb files There is "60-sensor.hwdb" the file that I need to replace, or at least edit. How do I replace that file FROM the web page file? | 2021-05-27
    This page would explain what I want to do for all the github I read, but the page no longer exists in all of them.
