Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

OpenRC+sysv fixes Debian's (my Debian's) shutdown/reboot problem

For some reason it was failing to unmount everything, and then simply halting indefinitely.

OpenRC/sysv seems to work fine, so far.

A console install is probably advised, if anyone is considering doing the same. After installing openrc, the install script will suggest a kind of pre-reboot line that will "manually" deactivate the services and then you should reboot. Which I did with sysreq, even though I probably shouldn't have.

I think they could "embed" this one liner pre-shutdown thing with the installation script, and also add the proper shutdown procedure afterwards.

Interesting article, and worrisome:
