PACKAGE SIZE (compressed): 76 K
PACKAGE SIZE (uncompressed): 200 K
sysvinit: sysvinit (init, the parent of all processes)
sysvinit: System V style init programs by Miquel van Smoorenburg that control
sysvinit: the booting and shutdown of your system. These support a number of
sysvinit: system runlevels, each with a specific set of utilities spawned.
sysvinit: For example, the normal system runlevel is 3, which starts agetty
sysvinit: on virtual consoles tty1 - tty6. Runlevel 4 starts xdm.
sysvinit: Runlevel 0 shuts the system down.
