I think I've run out of ideas for this thread.
Haven't changed a lightbulb since they went over to systemd.

Linux users wouldn't have a clue how to change one. They couldn't because they couldn't RTFM:
Code:
bash-4.2$ man lightbulb
No manual entry for lightbulb
bash-4.2$ man light-bulb
No manual entry for light-bulb
bash-4.2$

That's because it's obviously
Code:
man light_bulb
Things might have changed, though. It's been a while:
Code:

So has anyone successfully installed Linux on a lightbulb with UEFI boot?

I understand that Red Hat lightbulb-for-Enterprise will boot with UEFI
and with security-enhanced linux ( courtesy of the NSA ) your lightbulb cant be hacked
and because it is hardened will not break if dropped

The lightbulb was deprecated, so we updated it to use lightbulbd.

I use LedBorg Cheerlights (currently purple) and an LED ceiling light (manually matched to it) does that count?

No that bulb lacks socket activation. lightbulbd is the future, everyone is using it, we're going to force you to use lightbulbd whether you like it or not because switch is getting moved from the wall to the bulb itself as bswitch and will be incompatible with current sockets and switches. Either upgrade or be left in the dark.

Good point! My current bulb fits in my current socket and is capable of running on 240V AC -- in future I must rewire my home to -5V and +12V DC with a -7V control circuit in order to use lightbulbd. It may seem stupid but a certain person (who's yet to produce anything that works properly) says it is needed so it must be!

Hard to believe what I'm seeing here from some of the brightest minds in the industry(??) I mean - come on! OK, this thread was started in 2005, but I can find no acknowledgment of RAILB - Redundant Arrays of Independent Light Bulbs (sometimes incorrectly called RAIL - Redundant Arrays of Independent Lightbulbs). I will admit to not studying every word of all 374 comments (so far). Did I miss a post or two that has already mentioned RAILB?

While I'm no guru, I've been maintaining a RAILB system that has gone over 7 years now without a single reboot. Light bulbs are, of course, routinely maintained and replaced on a scheduled basis. But replacing individual light bulbs as an emergency procedure, with all the downtime that entails - Sheesh! That has got to be considered as a deprecated practice, if not altogether obsolete. Let's get with the times, guys!
