About

I'm a Linux user for about 10 years, I like the Rolling Stones, Documenting, and Bonbons. I am a wiki admin and I'm old. Though I may not stick to wiki conventions, please be kind. I appreciate conversations about their content, and it is those conversations that I'd like to focus on. Thank you for reading. Sidenote, I got a good laugh/bump from reading this:

If you're a heavy committer like me, you've probably got lots of poorly messaged commits ('works!', 'broken', 'fuck', 'woo', etc.). This is a bad habit, but I haven't been able to break it yet and I know I'm not the only one!

Mirrorlist generator link

Hi, with [1] you reverted my fix for the https://www.archlinux.org/mirrorlist/?country=United+States&protocol=ftp link: when I open it the country=United+States and protocol=ftp parameters are invalid (I had changed them to country=US and protocol=http). Does the page work correctly for you with those parameters? The server should serve the same page for everybody I think. -- Kynikos (talk) 02:49, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing this out Kynikos; agreed the page should serve everyone. The link was an error on my part. Repaired.

Journal commit time

The commit=60 is a mount option, and as such cannot be set by sysctl. The Power saving page correctly refers to setting it in fstab.

I removed the rootfs kernel parameter because it applies only to the root filesystem (the filesystem under the / mountpoint), whereas setting commit= in the fstab implies setting it for every affected filesystem. Agreed?

Thanks, for the explanation... it is very nice of you. I agree with you: the edit I did is unique and possibly unwarranted of an explanation... so please forgive beforehand :).
It is possible not to have a /etcfstab listing... I don't. With the use of GPT partitions, some program (udisks,systemd) is able to detect the volumes and mount them with their default options. Why would I do this? Part experimentation I would have to admit; but I also liked having the system handle my mount options. (likely what happens is that: the root filessystem is directed to via the bootloader the swap partition is detected...). Anyhow, it is a good decision to leave out. I apologize for not having reasoned this out beforehand.
