Today I read about the problem with one assertion in systemd, I read it in the amazing blog of Andrew Ayer (Click here), Right now is necessary document this problem using the Proof of Concept published in the systemd github page.
For documentation purposes I use screenshots but the final report for the systemd bug tracking is in plain text :).
- Host OS: Fedora 24 Desktop (only official Fedora desktop rpmfusion repos) updated (9/29/2016). https://paste.fedoraproject.org/438231/16649614/
- systemd: 229
- Hardware: Lenovo thinkpad T440s.
The calls to systemd based commands (systemd-nspaw, systemctl, etc) hangs and later shows a timeout message. No general system degradation.
Ok, Andrew Ayer has a very clever point but my opinion is better help to debugging and improve systemd.
