Reminds me of my POSIX shell configuration management thingy: http://git.uggedal.com/conf

As someone who used Puppet for some years, went to Salt[1], then Ansible[2], I've setteled on POSIX sh[3],

I moved to a perl-based solution because that's a bit neater than shell:

I find it works well, each node pulls configuration from github, an rsync share, or similar, and executes locally. So there's no master in the traditional sense.

502? Oh the irony.

The top of the line T440s should fit your requirements. I actually ordered one yesterday for running linux on.

Why don't people do a quick search before naming things: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/C_shell

Maybe it really means "C Sharp Hell".

If you use Chrome you can install the Octosplitt[1] extension for side-by-side diffs.

Openrc does not provide a pid 1 init implementation. On most openrc systems sysvinit launces openrc to handle service startup.

-----


How many of its programs link to gnutls though? And if I'm not misunderstandig only client software is vulnerable to the cited attack.

-----


> You must also reboot to upgrade sysvinit.

The whole point of the article is that you don't need to upgrade sysvinit or another minimal /sbin/init like those found in the BSDs.

-----


The argument is kinda weak given how many kernel updates are there and how often they come (and kernel upgrade _requires_ reboot regardless of PID 1).

-----


Not necessarily. Ksplice[1] for example allows the kernel to be upgraded without rebooting.

No, it will not.
