Just run it in a container and none of this matters.
Pi-Hole's docker version was not a well done container 3 years ago when I implemented this solution. It was by no means a good idea at the time.
Well I just meant going forward.
That gets into different issues since Fedora went with podman. I haven't done much tinkering with it yet to see how compatible things are.
It's a drop in replacement. It doesn't use the Docker socket so you can't use things like docker-compose, but I don't necessarily see that as a bad thing. Any normal tasks should be the same. There's people who have said they aliased podman to docker and never noticed a difference.
Stratis is just an automation and communication layer for XFS and LVM
I did not know that.
I didn't either, was just researching it, lol. It makes it a lot more valuable, it is essentially taking the "one filesystem" advantages of ZFS or BtrFS and making them happen with traditional, mature technologies. Kind of a best of both worlds approach. Actually quite nice, if it works well.
@JaredBusch So... now that you've had this up and running for a while, care to report on how that is going? Inquiring minds are curious. Particularly w.r.t. resource utilization comparison, performance differences, etc. comparatively. I think you were on Mongo previously, correct? Cuz I am right there with you on the license bullshit. All it takes is one bump in the road, merger, and wham, history repeats and next major version changes license again - only this time to something closed. Have no interest in betting on community to fork and continue. Need a safer bet. It would appear that percona may have already done so w/their percona mongodb offering but I wonder if that would continue as a full fork if/when upstream became closed source.
I'm guessing Scott doesn't care about the GUI aspect of it much, and likely mostly lives on the commandline access to the devices.
I care about how much the GUI lets me get the job done. The GUI portion of SC is superior, for sure. But the speed of getting in and out of hte GUi and other components is far superior on MC. I'm doing IT work, not remote work, via the console so that the GUI isn't quite as nice rarely has any effect.
