I've been going through a number of 'linux's' lately looking for a
particular problem and it's fix (yeah, I know there are plenty out
there). I am starting to notice a fair few of the smaller 'workstation
only' ones that were systemd have / are / considering changing to
Gentoo's OpenRC. I was wondering on the lfs thoughts in general of
creating at least a test build, and how much work it would be to create.
All I was asking was on the groups thoughts and how hard it is to create
another LFS (Test) Build document! Like from maybe 'someone / those' who
has 'built / created / tried to create' one. Maybe some guidance, warnings
on 'gotchas' and the other major problems I might come across, or already
created templates and the like was the expected response!
I did comment on what was found while doing a problem fix troll through
the resultant type of systemd "Linux variations" as they seem to be those
who considered / gone the OpenRC path. I had also searched through
non-systemd variations. I somehow thought this may be of interest for some.
I admit, and have done before, that I don't use systemd, being from the
Puppy Linux world and back to Yggdrasil(, where i'm a proud owner of two
different cdrom booksets and one set on hard format 5 1/4" floppy's with a
typed manual from 1992).
Also, personally, nowadays, i'm use to using either busybox's init or
toybox's nowadays but did once have a look at runit.
So, my origonal question still stands unanswered!
Short answer: I have no interest in another boot system.
Long answer: Boot systems are relatively intrusive. They require a lot
of time to research and affect a lot of instructions in the books (they
affect BLFS also). I had to shut down my systems last night due to a
power failure. Looking at my boot log (sysV) this morning, it took from
09:23:19 to 09:23:24 to boot up my workstation.
Unless I know what problems a change is addressing, I do not want to make
