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.

I admit that systemd is good in automatically handling the common setups (i.e. with only one partition), but fstab is still the best for configuring options for multiple filesystems as it is a centralized config file.
Anyway, thanks for acknowledgement, closing.

GNOME#Installation

Hi, you, Chazza and me do a little edit circle to GNOME#Installation the last two days and I understand from your edit description of [2] that you did not fully grasp why it happened. You contribute a lot to the wiki and I just want to give you feedback on it: I adjusted your edit [3] with [4] because (1) "...; an application's description" is half-baked style/grammar and the information of the following apps not being in gnome-extra will be helpful to readers at install point. Today you follow it up with [5] and all is good, except we want to avoid "implicit" links (with "here" being the implicit bit in your edit; see Help:Style#Hypertext_metaphor). This was adjusted again by Chazza with [6]. So all is good now, if you understand the reasoning of why your quoted edits were reworded. The rule about "implicit links" is often a little neglected. Most of us know when editing it is a quick way to drop in the important information: the link and not bother with phrasing the link contextually into verbose. Still, like Chazza puts it in his edit description: for a reader it is even more informative to know where the link will lead (ideally the reader has no need to hover across it with the mouse). That's what I wanted to feedback. Feel free to close this right after you read it, if clear. Cheers. --Indigo (talk) 18:43, 6 November 2014 (UTC)
