You say affinity is not related to scheduling. To rephrase my question with this in mind; won't letting the scheduler pin affinity ("mixing them") have the potential of improve scheduling?

comment Who started xterm in my debian xterm+lightdm kiosk system?
Actually there is no .xinitrc anymore. It's called .xsession now for some reason.

comment Who started xterm in my debian xterm+lightdm kiosk system?
I made a discovery! lightdm uses /etc/X11/Xsession which on debian is a huge mess of scripts calling eachoter. This in turn is responsible for calling ~/.xsession The reason why xterm was started is because I did not have ~/.xsession. And this is the fun part: the ~/.xinitrc file is no longer used for never versions of xorg, so even if you have it, it will still revert to the xterm

comment Who started xterm in my debian xterm+lightdm kiosk system?
good idea! I allready did ps auxf and it is clear that xterm is started by lightdm, however I am more interrested in knowing which configuration option in which configuration file is responsible. I guess that must be the lightdm.conf file, however it is not at all clear to my how it selected to start xterm

Boy have I looked there... I even did a grep -iR xterm / at one point without getting any wiser.

comment How do I create new partitions and format my hard drive in parted?
I love fdisk as much as the next guy, but please be aware that it is on its way to becoming legacy due to a lack of support for many modern partition table formats (read GPT). I think parted and cfdisk handle this better.
