SysV init? ORLY? 4 RLY! [Jun. 21st, 2007|02:31 am]


[mood |baffled]

Just to make sure I've got this handy for the next time someone starts claiming that Slackware uses BSD init, and quotes something about "BSD-style" as proof of this...

<rworkman> Okay, guys, to clear the air:
<rworkman> 07:10 < rworkman> volkerdi: would you be willing to clarify
           http://www.slackware.com/config/init.php to indicate that         
           Slackware *does* use SysV init.  It seems that some refuse to
           listen to reason.
<rworkman> 07:22 < volkerdi> rworkman: I'd think that /etc/rc.d/rc.sysvinit
           being run whenever the runlevel is changed might be a clue,   along
           with the appearance of the new directories (which worked before
           too, but had to be made manually)

Huge thanks to rworkman for getting PV to put this particular issue to rest.
