comment What are the main differences between uselessd and systemd?
@derobert I referenced the website to provide a reference to the concept of uselessd and read through it. It is true that this page already informs about many aspects. I was hoping to receive a more comprising list as an answer which would also feature the differences from a more impartial systemd open minded perspective, then the page referenced. This I hoped would help to get a better picture.

does git clone https://github.com/PointCloudLibrary/pcl.git work? It would of course clone all in pcl.git?

comment Why does find -inum iterate through the whole filesystem tree?
why is it that "Luckily, finding a directory's name is much more efficient, because every directory contains the inode number of its containing directory"?

comment Why does find -inum iterate through the whole filesystem tree?
have many thanks for the answer which added some new detail. the options of fsdb or debugfs are indeed not really solving the issue too as internally they also have to look through all directories and its entries to find names for the inode number. Yet they may save some overhead which comes with using find. My initial misguided idea was that the inode<->filename(s) mapping in the fs was bidirectional and by this a tree-walk unecessary.

comment Are there alternatives to using `udev`?
@grawity Fair point, but maybe I am not even that fine with booting with systemd for init then! gotta give it a look

Thanks! Great answer which addressed most if not all of aspects of the question and was full of information! Wonder how to solve the systemd problem now... I will see how to disentangle this :)

comment At Backup, when would the filesystems inode numbers matter?
@Anthon Thanks, bright though! I did this indeed,yet had the trouble that besides empty space I also have much of the very same files with same data backuped. So while I want to be able to go back in time to any of the backup points I do not want to waste space double storing equal files. So eventually I would use some database driven accounting. Still the question here is if I need to care about inode numbers if I want to go back in time backupwise.

comment What means a number of links > 1 for directories?
@jw013 Indeed the question "How to find all the links to a directory" seems to eventually lead to much the same information. The value of this question (which indeed could be answered much in the same way and I might give this answer myself) would be that it does put the focus on the fact where the links to the directory result from in the question. The other question is already aware of that. A confused information seeker is more likely to get the info by this question than with the other. Yet if you think different I can delete the question.

@jw013 thanks for that bright idea! I was really confused! But indeed the only ever kind-off hardlinks to directories are the ... Thanks for clearing my confusion. This also gives the reason why the linkcount always ever starts with 2 for newly made directories.
