bumps on the road to systemd --no inittab [solved]

Hey guys,

I felt comfortable enough with the systemd wiki instructions to uninstall initscripts, but when I rebooted, the system complained that there was no inittab, and asked for a runlevel. I tried to enable multi-user.service, and a couple other things, but was only able to boot when I put the init=/path/to/systemd line back in menu.1st.

I'd like to boot right into runlevel 5--I created the example xinit.service from the wiki page, and it worked, but anyway-- I'm going to stop now and hope I'm missing something obvious. If necessary I'll update this post with something more coherent in the morning.

thanks

I think there's a symlink from init to systemd needed somewhere, but having not done that I'm not sure how you'd get that, its in some systemd-related package or other.
