Re: openrc

I've always wanted to create a live ISO that contained every init in existence, and you could choose between the 20 of them at bootup.

Re: openrc

How about starting with few AUR inits by making them workable.... sysVinit, openrc and runit. From there creating respins (installable iso) to test.

This tread has quite many view hits, users seem interested in this.

No-one wants yet more stupid respins.

Re: openrc

Maybe in Arch if it doesn't have the respin tools. Otherwise its an outdated opinion. This page has 32,000 hits in 8 months and many of the respins have hundreds of download.

You should know better: no-one cares about popularity here. We care even less about spinoffs: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Co … pport_ONLY

Re: openrc

In this thread discussing about other inits and finding things to coexist, "respin" is not a "spinoff". Its a tool to test new ideas without messing up our running system. A writable USB live respin is ideal in this regard. The respin link I posted, are users individual experiments showing either new possibilities for the distro or solving questions or issues. Example when there was the question that systemd-shim will not be available in Debian 10, which was earlier mentioned in this thread.
