comment Can root kill init process?
@jsbillings On the embedded Linux SBCs I'm working with issuing kill -TERM 1 definitely causes a reboot (actually going through the ::shutdown: entry and associated script in inittab.)

comment Custom service (systemd) won't run on startup
systemctl list-jobs: no jobs running. I tried with forking, nothing. Finally, lost my patience and added it to bashrc (in a singletonish way so new shells won't try to spawn it again), and works like charm. I hate systemd.

comment Custom service (systemd) won't run on startup
I choose Idle because I wanted it to start last, when normally X starts. It can be simple or forking just fine (need to add one & in the script for forking). I'll check the jobs soon (currently the disk image is being backed up).

comment Custom service (systemd) won't run on startup
I did as you asked with systemctl.conf, attached a piece of the new log. It mentions chromium.service so it isn't entirely ignored...

comment Custom service (systemd) won't run on startup
The Chromium script replaces the graphical system. X-windows is started from that script. The whole mechanics of xinit, .xinitrc, and so on is bypassed - normally there's a bunch of things loaded there that I have no control over, and no need of, as all they can do for me is intruding into the kiosk screen. Currently, besides chromium, the only thing in graphical.target.wants (both /etc and /lib) is systemd-update-utmp-runlevel.service.

comment why would you tar a zip file
You save the same number of inodes through tar and through zip; you save nothing if you use both at once.

comment What's the difference between a partition and physical volume?
How would the Volume Group know the geometry of the disk? How could it play nice with non-LVM partitions on the same disk?

comment Get the same UUID on different Linux distributions
I wonder what the differences are for dmidecode output without the '--string system-uuid' parameters across the versions. Possibly instead of depending on the parameter you could pass the result to 'sha1sum' or something - after culling the differences if any.
