Re: How to avoid stealth installation of systemd?

#166 Post by buntunub »

Can someone help me out here? I read the thread topic and it says, "How to avoid stealth installation of systemd?". The last bunch of pages have nothing to do with that. This actually should have been a one page thread or less if we are talking about a technical issue. If this is another systemd rant thread, then I think the topic is very misleading and generally irritating to read through all this when I just want to know how to avoid stealth installation of systemd..

Agreed, it would seem installing Jessie then blocking future systemd infestation will only cause problems because of DE/app dependencies. I read a quote recently, "Debian capitulated to systemd because they didn't have the resources (willing developers) to remove systemd tentacles from source packages and maintain their repos as such", seems to ring true to a degree.

Wheezy is the last non-Redhat version of Debian.
