Compiling the right X version to fit with your existing stuff takes some trial and error. Having to recognize every time your distro updates X and recompile is a time sink, even if you have a shellscript do the whole thing. > >Again, sorry Guillermo, this is not personal, it is "political". Suggestion: Next time lead off with the preceding sentence. I think we all have a pretty good idea of motivations surrounding systemd, and those motivations are every bit as ugly as those of proprietary software. If it had been framed as "this sucks, but you need to compile X yourself to get out of this mess", I think it would have been more effective. And I'd like to congratulate you for running a dbus-less system. I know it's not easy --- I only succeeded in doing it once ( http://troubleshooters.com/linux/init/manjaro_experiments.htm#12232014_pure_runit_init_proof_of_concept ). If you're the type of person who likes giving presentations, it would be wonderful if you could present at one of our monthly GoLUG online Jitsi meetings.
