John Olinda Just finished configuring Resilio Sync on my Void Linux install. It was my first time working with runit, but I'm pleased with how it worked out. Configured Syncthing just for good measure so I can test both. I went with MATE as the primary interface, but also installed LXQT, Cinnamon, and Budgie to test them out. Cinnamon, MATE, and LXQT work great, but Budgie isn't.

☕ David Antoine I don't how that works but, speaking of init system, aren't some apps installing systemd packages because those apps are tied with it ? Can a Linux distro like Void work completely "independently" without having systemd "force installed" one way or another ? I know dependencies are part of living with Linux but I don't understand why a specific init system should be a condition to install whatever app. I'm not specialist anyway, that kind of stuff fly over my head :) I just wonder if not having systemd is a potential problem for a day-to-day use...

John Olinda With Void, the repos have been stripped of systemd as far as I can tell. So even GNOME has been patched so that it has no systemd dependencies. It wasn't the reason I went with Void, but if you've got a major problem with systemd it's about as far from it as you can get without going BSD.
