Maybe the timestamp on /var/lib/mlocate/mlocate.db?

What kind of secret voodoo does one need to use rsyslog on a systemd system? Is it even possible?

I have installed it, and I only get kernel boot messages in /var/log/messages.

I find journalctl to be fundamentally braindead, lacking features which we have taken for granted for decades in redhat/rhel/fedora/centos. (Seriously, whats the wisdom of keeping ALL logs around forever?, and in an easily corruptible format).

I found something on the fedora web site which said to just install rsyslog. Which seems to be obsolete or invalid.

I was wondering if their is a way to have multiple desktop environment on a fedora system without one messing with other. Anytime you have multiple desktop environment on a system they will start writing each others configuration files messing up with themes. Not to mention populated application menus.

Would it be possible to create different users for different desktop environment? Or something like that.

I am running Fedora 20 x86_64. Its on a private network not connected to the Internet, and with no NTP server. When I shut down the machine, it pauses for more than a minute at a stop job is running for NTP client/server. I dont think I enabled NTP when I installed it, but Ive done

systemctl disable ntpd.service 

and the same for ntpdate and sntp, but it still pauses for that stop job. Why is it doing that, and what can I do to make it skip that?
