I'll be restarting the shell server at 3pm today, then will be making some adjustments. The adjustments shouldn't cause any more downtime -- but just in case they do, let me apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

I'll be making changes to mount management that should make the shell server more secure, reliable, and rapid.

More adjustments made today in how filesystems are mounted.

User XDG_RUNTIME directories are now tmpfs filesystems mounted in private chroots. So you'll see something like:

Code: Select all

scott_xdg                                1048576          0   1048576   0% /run/user

/run/user]_(scott@sh)_
$ find . -ls
42438105    0 drwxr-xr-x   3 root     root           60 Sep 26 14:19 .
42437367    0 drwx------   2 scott    user           40 Sep 26 14:19 ./504


Please let me know if it breaks. :)

Edit: BTW, can't think of any programs that actually use this directory -- but systemd makes a big deal about it, so we have to handle it.

Shell server restart today at 3pm.

I figure that's the best time for restart because a) there are a lot of night owls that use it, and b) if something goes sideways, we have some time during the work day to recover.
