Re: [opensuse] restarting X server in openSUSE 12.2 with systemd

So? Multi-user and graphical are clear enough, but who came up with target to
summarize an operational configuration easily visualized via the simple
chkconfig -l matrix? The word's usage is not clear to me, and thus, not
easily memorable.

Because, as Cristian says, things are dynamic not static.
Its no longer just about single vs multi vs graphical, its about what services are running and what devices are connected.

If you are running a laptop in graphical mode then plugin in a wifi USB device all of sudden networking is available. So all the network services can start ... dns ... postfix ... apache ... ntp and other clients. Or shut down when the USB device is removed.

So its about using systemctl to display whir are active or which have failed.

The matrix you mention no longer makes any sense in a dynamic environment. Its not giving you the information you need - which is about what is running and what is not, and *why* what is not running is not running.
