Linux A new version of the real-time Linux scheduler called SCHED_DEADLINE has been released on the Linux Kernel Mailing List. For people who missed previous submissions, it consists of a new deadline-based CPU scheduler for the Linux kernel with bandwidth isolation (resource reservation) capabilities. It supports global/clustered multiprocessor scheduling through dynamic task migrations. This new version takes into account previous comments/suggestions and is aligned to the latest mainline kernel. A video about SCHED_DEADLINE is also available on YouTube.

"On a server, without GUI, it downloaded X11 + its dependencies because I wanted to install some graphic conversion utility (CLI based!). Removing that tool removes the tool, but not X11."

apt-get install --no-install-recommends foo

I suspect would have been the way to avoid installing X.

apt-get remove --auto-remove foo

will get rid of all unused dependencies.

You could clean up all unused dependencies with

apt-get autoremove

or use deborphan for those who prefer a gui.

Also

apt-get --simulate ....

will allow you to see what the results will be before you mess things up.

I recommend you have a look at

man apt-get
