Index distros by their boot method


I was just trying to find some distros that use busybox as their init system, & came up blank.

Would it be possible to search for such in the future?

I'd rather see that information provided by Distrowatch (which isn't currently providing it either) than LQ.

How about using Google instead? I didn't think BusyBox was an init system?

You are correct.

As 273 points out, you should try searching the web in general. The term would be boot loader not init, and BusyBox is not that anyways. Why not read up on what BusyBox actually is here.
