suspend to disk with 16 GB RAM - have fun :-)

i have really no problem with "systemd" but it would be wise to
use it only for new installations to get a wider userbase without
spit current users in their face instead give them time to play
and decide while have the benefit of nerwer kernels and better

this time "systemd" is not trustable since if there is a problem
with httpd the anser of a "service start" is OK and the service was
not started
[root at testserver:~]$ service httpd start
Starting httpd (via systemctl): [  OK  ]
