Introduction

Blizzard's games are wildly popular, and most of them work very well in Wine on Linux. Sure, they're not officially supported, but that doesn't mean that it's hard to get them running on Ubuntu.

Before you get started, make sure that you have the latest graphics drivers for your system installed. Playing games would be kind of hard without them.

Introduction

Systemd has nowadays become the de facto standard init system for all the major Linux distributions.

Superseding SysV and upstart, it also replaced the classical way of defining system runlevels, using system targets, a special type of unit.

In this tutorial we will see how to boot an Ubuntu 18.04 system into the emergency and rescue systemd targets, and what kind of environment they provide to the users.
