    Also the 1 minute shutdown thing? yeeeeaaah....Thuroughly enjoying a 5second shutdown and 8second cold-boot-to-desktop here. The only thing that can make shutdown hang in systemd is 2 big things...

    1) You just wrote a crapload of data to a hard drive and are waiting for it to be synced to disk
    2) a service that refuses to exit, in which case systemd waits a preset amount of time ( I believe it IS 60seconds) before going "Screw it" and killing that said service anyway. Which is a precaution, not a bug.

    So its not a bug its a feature?

    "Feature" is a stretch, but I would stick with precaution. Some services have built in monitors to detect if their process has hung and to handle it on their own gracefully, some don't. Some like to do a lot of things on shutdown. Systemd says "All processes have X seconds from the time they are told to shutdown to exit cleanly or I'm putting a bullet in whichever ones don't." Its THAT, or let them be hung and then the only thing that will make them exit is a hard shutdown.

    Take your pick... timed bullet from the process manager, or forced shutdown from the user?

    OpenRC ignores uninstalled drives with with fstab entry no need to do anything .

    Thats incorrect behavior... If a drive is not available the EXPECTED behavior is to error UNLESS nofail is specified. I think its even supposed to error if a drive that is marked as "noauto" is not available because it still checks to see if it exists.

    Incorrect schmincorrect its SANE behaviour look since i had no clue what is the problem i had to page trough journalctl. I wasted 10minutes of my life thanks to this "feature" Instead warning me hey dummy your harddrive wasnt found no systemd has scare me with generic emergency mode bah

    It's perfect for new users. Giving them a blank screen and saying "good luck" is just what we need to bring folks over from Windows.

    I'm not arguing sane or insane. I'm arguing correct or incorrect according to spec / documentation. And documentation states that if its not marked with "nofail" then its lack of existence is an error.

    If you don't like it talk to the developers, both systemd and kernel.

    Exactly i mean its crazy they made systemd which is immensely complicated with thousands of lines of code but it cannot display why it failed to boot

    My docs don't even mention nofail. It must be a relatively recent option.

    And no, noauto options are not checked at all for existence.
