The {{ic|1=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 [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Power_saving&diff=342627&oldid=342626 rootfs kernel parameter] because it applies only to the root filesystem (the filesystem under the {{ic|/}} mountpoint), whereas setting {{ic|1=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 {{ic|/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.

Revision as of 08:37, 12 February 2016


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!
