Re: systemd on Solydxk

Hi kurotsugi... :)

I do notice a quicker boot time with systemd and Manjaro. Might be something nice for SolydXK.. ;)
Its real nice, but I do prefer Debian based. (simpler), and hard to beat APT.

Re: systemd on Solydxk

/etc/rc.local (from a Manjaro installation that uses systemd by default).
Nothing there.

Code: Select all

[gene@manjaro ~]$ cat /etc/rc.local 
#!/bin/bash

Lets see if anyone on 64bit with stock kernel and drivers has this catfish working properly. This needs to be tested, as its a pr...

Re: Catfish doesn't find any files.
