Runit or s6...

Posted 07-08-2014 at 11:33 PM by ReaperX7

To date, I've been working with Runit to introduce a new type of init system to GNU/Linux. In retrospect Runit has worked wonderfully minus some tedious bugs with partition dismounts.

Runit has worked wonderfully as an init and I can only hope that it keeps getting better than better. It's stable and is very unintrusive.

All it needs are a mountain of service scripts to fuel it and with a symlink to the proper directory, off it goes.

I couldn't have asked to work with a better init system.

However recently we've been looking at s6... but so far s6 isn't as forward in how you use it. Where-as Runit came with a Debian implementation and Arch, Gentoo, and others had good samples, s6 doesn't. It has a vague example, so honestly, I don't know how it can be implemented, even at all.

I've been considering postponing or cancelling the project until we can study it more to get to see how it works and understand it's process. Our team really has mixed feelings on this, so right now, I have no idea of what to do or where to go.
