I just experimented with Slavek's PSB and PTB repos, but I get the same 
results, no matter what. 

If all else fails, I could probably use dpkg to force-install an older/newer 
version of the package (from stretch or bullseye?), just to see if I can make 
it work. It would probably work as a standalone package without systemd if I 
used the stretch version (just a hunch, based on past experience); I've done 
this with a few problematic items, and they often run just fine, but then 
when I try to install something else or upgrade, the system wants to remove 

As I am still new to beowulf/buster, I am trying to play nice, follow the 
rules, and avoid anything too weird. Once I know it better, I'll find a way 
to make it do what I want. 

Maybe Slavek will get drawn into this discussion. I feel sure that he gets the 
no-systemd crowd.
