>>63850882>So they all mostly just use sysvinit, as seen on a lot of pre-systemd loonixes.
Interestingly, Ubuntu, Fedora, and RHEL used Upstart before switching to systemd. It's one of Lennart's (and systemd apologists') little lies to suggest that everyone was using sysvinit before systemd came around. It's convenient because people hate sysvinit a lot.>I'm not very familiar with BSD init, but I assume it's fairly similar.
It's the original Unix init. Instead of the rcX.d directories with symlinks that sysvinit uses, BSD init has a sequencer script that determines the order of init scripts by reading their headers.
AIX is even simpler (and cruder) in that it starts most daemons directly from inittab.>InstallGentoo?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Gentoo uses openRC also as the init, instead of just being a wrapper around sysvinit.
