/etc/inittab: No such file or directory


I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and i can't find inittab on my system? Where did it go? Has Ubuntu removed this file? How can i find out about runlevels now?

Ubuntu no longer uses init as the script for starting the systems, they have replaced it with an event driven system called upstart. So inittab which was the configuration file for init is no longer needed. As for runlevels, that was a concept used by init, so it's not really relevant anymore for Ubuntu.
