[solved] /bin/init is in systemd-sysvcompat ?

Just noticed that /bin/init aka /usr/bin/init is in package systemd-sysvcompat. That seems to imply that I can somehow boot in a "non-sysv compatibility mode" without having /bin/init .

I notice it's a symlink to /usr/lib/systemd/systemd ... perhaps that's supposed to be invoked directly by the kernel?

Even a brand-new image (2018-01-01) contains systemd-sysvcompat. Is a systemd-sysvcompat-less system supported?

I guess what I'm really asking is why systemd-sysvcompat is a separate package.

jasonwryan: so how do you boot? With kernel param init=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd?
