Shameless self-advertisement  

Have you ever wondered one of those?

  • How does this plumbing behind GNOME actually work?
  • What are all these processes on my system here for?
  • How can I manage user permissions for system actions?
  • How can I override or force user configurations?
  • How do I configure GDM?
  • What can I do with NetworkManager?

For those who weren’t at Mini-DebConf Paris 2012 last week, let me share here again the slides:

Large deployment of GNOME from the administrator’s perspective

These questions, and many others, will find the beginning of an answer here. At the very least, I hope to show people leads on where to find relevant information for their needs about administrating GNOME systems.

This is indeed a very useful overview of the existing mechanisms.
Very helpfull to understand the switches that have been taken place since squeeze.

In your slides you mention systemd as a new mechanism to replace consolekit in jessie. Will systemd be initiated in jessie as a default service and will it also replace SysV as startupmechanism?

Systemd’s logind (the service replacing ConsoleKit) should work without systemd running.

That said, GNOME will probably recommend systemd.
