Garret Arcoraci - 25 January 2019

systemd is a basic building block of modern Linux distributions. It provides a system and service manager that runs as PID 1 and starts the rest of the system. In this presentation, Prof. Garret Arcoraci introduces systemd, where it fits into the distribution, and how it works. He explains common concepts such as unit files, targets, dependencies, run levels, and more.
