I'm on a fresh install of Mint 18.2, and I'm adding a bunch of multimedia tools. I would like to have LMMS use VST files, as well; but this requires Wine as (curiously) VSTs are all portable executables.
I'm not a big fan of Wine, I have Windows for that; but so be it. However, before installing it, I see that it requires the removal of systemd. I don't know why this is, and honestly I'm not a huge fan of systemd either; but it serves a pretty critical role. I'm not ready to ditch it just yet.
It's probably safe; this is through the Software Manager. However it seems appropriate to at least do a little digging first.
Does anyone know why Wine insists on removing systemd? Is it replaced with one of these other packages? Am I safe in doing this?
