openrc-init man page

openrc-init ā€” the parent of all processes

Synopsis

openrc-init

Description

openrc-init is an init process which can be an alternative to sysvinit or any other init process.

To use openrc-init configure your boot loader to invoke it or symlink it to /sbin/init. Also, you will need to use openrc-shutdown(8), to halt, reboot or poweroff the system.

The default runlevel is read from the init command line, the rc_default_runlevel setting in rc.conf, the kernel command line, or it is assumed to be "default" if it is not set in any of these places.

openrc-init doesn't manage getty's directly, so you will need to manage them another way. For example, you can use the agetty service script as described in agetty-guide.md in this distribution.

Bugs

This was first released as part of OpenRC 0.25. I do not know of any specific issues. However, since this is the first release of openrc-init, please test and report any issues you find.
