What system init daemon do you use


The subject lines says it all.

I made the mistake of not choosing a multiple choice poll. I hit the submit button to quickly.

So, you could choose your main init daemon above and list any others you use.

Wow, at this time, almost 24 hrs after it was first posted, the poll's showing 100% use of systemd. On the other hand, three sponses in 23+ hours is not a very good response rate

If you've got Ubuntu, you've got upstart. It's not really a choice: converting from one to another is almost as bad as building your own distro.

Slackware - Sys V - forever...

Should Pat find it necessary to go to systemd at some point I will probably consolidate with the last Sys V Slackware version and use it until my hardware dies, or I do, whichever comes first.

You can count yourself lucky: CentOS doesn't have that facility at all!

Personally, I don't have much knowledge to share: I use what I'm given and don't mess with things that work. But I do use duckduckgo, which instantly finds things like
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Init
http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/Lin...itProcess.html

As they used to say in X files, "The answer is out there."

Since I am using Pinguy, a derivative of ubuntu, I get the same output as well.

I forgot to mention after you do that, type man init in the terminal and it should tell you it is using Upstart as its deamon.

Changing between init systems is rather trivial in Gentoo.
