Glad to see any new comic here after such a long hibernation, but I don't understand the punchline, nor the apparently NSFW postscript. Can somebody please explain?

#2 cherry Sun, 6 May 2018 19:09:35
systemd is written by Lennart Poettering, and gives verbose messages like that when your network state changes.
Give.Him.The.D just refers to the d in systemd as far as I am aware.

#3 Dajaaj Mon, 7 May 2018 08:46:16
Yeah, I feel like a better punchline might have been "Dudley, killed by kernel messages" or "Dudley, killed by systemd". Or even another panel where those letters all come after Dudley and the punchline is something like "Dudley, killed by a black dragon" with a postscript of "Dudley, killed by kernel messages".

In case you didn't know (speaking to Anonymous and anyone else who's confused here), on Linux systems when you're actually playing a game in a terminal, kernel messages can directly intrude into your screen like that. It's really quite annoying.

The comic was G, but -1 for the punchline.

#5 Anonymous Tue, 6 Nov 2018 14:57:35
Those messages are produced by the kernel, not by systemd.

#6 Anonymous Sat, 17 Nov 2018 08:56:52
systemd is the Orctown of linux

REP #5: Yes, but it should not print anything after boot.
Appearently, Lennart thought TTYs are not important and cause major troubles.
Fsck that "D". "V" for victory.
