Re: @#$%^*&! SystemD .. the snake strikes again

I think the answer to his question is: if you want to keep running mx with no systemd-related packages at all, then you are making a choice to have to conduct occasional pruning and package removal whenever certain packages update, because of systemd-related dependencies. That is inevitable because ...
