Finally setting up my wonderful new server. Debian 9 already up. Was going to remove , but apparently and require it. Eh.

@rysiek I'm running Docker in GoboLinux and we don't use systemd

@hisham_hm interesting. So maybe that's just libvirtd, then.

@rysiek @hisham_hm libvirt doesn't directly require systemd - it can link to libsystemd but that's also configurable during build.

@barthalion @hisham_hm ah, thanks. I might not be inclined to rebuild libvirtd in Debian though, so the question is: is it possible to use libvirtd in Debian without systemd. I guess we will have to see. :)

Bartłomiej Piotrowski @barthalion

@rysiek @hisham_hm That probably depends on how purist you are. I doubt that it uses libsystemd (note: not systemd as init) for anything crucial, so if you're fine with having it installed, I would call it a day.

@barthalion @hisham_hm will have to test this. It will involve running libvirtd inside a VM, because why make things too simple! ;)
