Second, I don't want systemd, I think it is still not as stable and
reliable as required on a production machine.

A personal choice and ubstantiated *opinion*.

I have to agree with Patrick on this; systemd is quite stable, thank you!

More to the point, Roger ask is about order and determinacy.
Yes it is iffy and this is one to the issues that systemd is there to address and resolve.


Finally, I am not sure that updating would result in a /media which
keeps manually added subdirectories (eg. /media/floppy). Would it?

I don't understand the use case, but upon inserting a "floppy", the
"/media/floppy" directory automatically appears. There is no need for
*persistance* except for personal desires.

And if you want it to be there after every boot, why that's what /etc/tmfiles.d is for!

But as Patrick says, it seems a strange request when its dealt with dynamically.

Or do you mean the old 8" floppies where the machine might have to poll to see if ifs been inserted?


I have usb and cd/dvd drives that appear no-where until there is a need,
but upon the need arising, the necessary directories automagically appear
satisfying that need.

And very satisfying it is too. All it needs is to be accompanied by a ice cold lager ...



It may eventially become necessary to see more than what is immediately in
front of you.

Like the ice cold lager?
