Regarding "invocation"

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

What is "invocation" in case of a daemon?

What about saying like: "This program is typically started as a service or could alternatively be invoked by another service that needs it"?
Having those words as a {{invocation}} template could then be useful also for some other articles.--Charles17 (talk) 09:05, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

dhcpcd link detecion

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

This capability seems to work OK, except when coming back from a hibernated system. I resolved it with elgind's hooks (/lib64/elogind/system-sleep/), issuing a --rebind. Sadly, it adds some delay to getting network (2-3 seconds!!), which isn't too much vs. not having network.

It may be worthwhile suggesting this in the main page, unless there is a better solution?

Quite happy to add it myself unless there is a better way of dealing with this (i.e., poke dhcpcd to link-detect without causing a full rebind)

Dead man page

The only reference cited is the man page of the project pointed at a dead link. The latest version of it that worked on Wayback Machine is from 2016. Is there a newer live man page or a better resource that could be referenced? Kcombinator (talk) 06:58, 20 April 2024 (UTC)

I change it to the one from linux.die.net. — Waldo Lemmer 07:26, 20 April 2024 (UTC)
