I think that you should check each and every service.

That seems wrong. Have a look in /run and /var/run in Slackware.

Long story short, you need to thoroughly study Slackware's init system if you want to modify it, I think.
Thanks for the answer.
The "pidfile" I mentioned before was taken from aaditya's init scripts and Gentoo's, and that is the only difference.

Another comparison:
Code:
$ md5sum /etc/init.d/nginx
6675a388b5efe3ce6ca1c02295ce61cd  /etc/init.d/nginx
Code:
$ md5sum /usr/portage/www-servers/nginx/files/nginx.initd-r3
6675a388b5efe3ce6ca1c02295ce61cd  /usr/portage/www-servers/nginx/files/nginx.initd-r3
Again:
Code:
diff --git a/etc/init.d/consolekit b/usr/portage/sys-auth/consolekit/files/consolekit-1.0.0.initd
old mode 100755
new mode 100644

I didn't look into aaditya's init scripts but this repository has been last updated on 2016-04-16, thus before the release of Slackware 14.2. My advice in previous post remains. But of course you remain free to experiment

Yes, they can be reused after checking if the same conditions (pidfiles, paths, etc) present on Gentoo are there in Slackware as well.

I dunno what the state was when I started the project, but on my Slackware-14.2 install I have:
Code:
$ ls -la /var/run
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 May 12  2015 /var/run -> /run/
Also, newer repository is available here.

openrc-init

Hi,

Since version 0.25, OpenRC provides openrc-init, which can be used to boot the system instead of /sbin/init (which is sysvinit in Slackware). Advantages include not modifying system provided inittab, and allowing co-existence and easy switch between Slackware init and OpenRC.

Have been using it for a couple of weeks now, works as expected. To use it, follow the instructions in the wiki. Please let me know if there are any issues.

Thanks!

Hi, I'm using openrc-init, and everything generally works. There are a few quirks though, they seem harmless so far, but I'd like to fix them.

At the end of the init process, I get this error. Searching for solutions, I could only find dead ends in Artix forums.
Code:
Error: fopen(/run/openrc/rc.log) failed: No such file or directory
I also get this, and don't know what service is causing it.
Code:
* Call to flock failed: Resource temporarily unavailable
.

Finally, I am getting this, even after updating the cache as mentioned on the wiki page.
Code:
checkpath: owner `netdata:netdata' not found
Here is the output of `rc-update`:
https://pastebin.com/raw/N5n3Srh6

And rc.log for my most recent boot:
https://pastebin.com/raw/4rK6sULe

Thanks.

Hi aliasless,

Code:
Error: fopen(/run/openrc/rc.log) failed: No such file or directory
I found similar posts and an upstream bug report, which suggest that it is related to /run not being available.

* https://forum.artixlinux.org/index.php/topic,56.0.html
* https://github.com/OpenRC/openrc/issues/216

There is one suggestion in the bugreport (near the end) that you can try.

For
Code:
* Call to flock failed: Resource temporarily unavailable
Looking at your logs, it could be related to your first issue of /run not being available.

Code:
checkpath: owner `netdata:netdata' not found
I think I found the issue, could you please change /etc/init.d/netdata like here:
https://gitlab.com/aadityabagga/open...f16beea8829c25

Thanks for your help!

Thanks, that change to netdata worked. I've been unable to get anywhere from that thread or bug report though.

Hi,

With the next version update, the service and configuration directory changes from /etc to /etc/openrc.

This is being done to maintain greater compatibility with the base Slackware install, and to allow switching between sysvinit, openrc-init, runit, etc.

Existing services will need to be migrated. Documentation is available here: migrating_from_etc_initd_to_etc_openrc_initd.

Updated Slackbuilds are available here.

Feedback welcome. Please let me know if you find any issues.

To add a parameter, one can simply write it on a new line under image, ie:

Code:
image = /boot/vmlinuz-3.12-1-generic
	...
	init=/sbin/openrc-init
More info: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...arameters#LILO

If it does not work post your full /etc/lilo.conf please.

First it not work but after i found solution:
Code:
image = /boot/vmlinuz
  append = "init=/sbin/openrc-init"
  root = /dev/sda3
  label = Linux
  read-only
 # Linux bootable partition config ends
