Diaspora* and Systemd


For future reference if/when I create my own pod, I wonder if it would run on antiX, a systemd-free Linux operating system. Must I install it on an OS that uses systemd like Debian?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

You don’t need systemd. You’d need to replicate the automated startup unit somehow, but it’s essentially just a “start this one script within the right env”, so I’m sure you can adapt that to whatever thing you’re using.


FWIW I’ve run my node for years inside a Docker container; the binary is available at koehn/diaspora on Docker Hub; source is available at docker / Diaspora · GitLab
