there has never been a problem for me with running Debian Jessie on 2.6.x, 3.x and 4.x kernels. It's the first issue of this kind I had.

Is the kernel version a strict requirement for PowerDNS? E.g. Virtuozzo 6 will have many years of support left, Debian Jessie is known to run well in Virtuozzo 6 containers. I think 50% of my cluster runs a 2.6.32 kernel that still receives support via RHEL6.

What happens if I comment the line on systems with older kernels? As far as I can see PowerDNS works normal. Why does systemd not disable the check for incompatibel kernel? Perhaps it would be an option, too, to disable systemd on all Debian Jessie containers and run init again.
