What are the different init-systems available for TCL?
« on: January 31, 2017, 02:14:02 AM »
Hi everyone, this is my first post here and I am also pretty much a beginner with linux so please bear with me and use simple layman terms when replying.

I tried finding information what init system is used in TCL and its various flavors and ports, if someone could be kind help me list up the default init system and its options available I would be thankful.

I have figured out there are these variants of TC:
Core
TinyCore
CorePlus

Ported variants:
x86Pure64
RaspberryPi
dCorex86
dCoreArm

Hope I did  get all the variants listed?

Thank you very much to you all.

Hi maiko,
Core uses busybox init.

Thank you very much!

On page 88 in the Corebook PDF I found this text "... Common options here are SysVinit, upstart, systemd, and busybox init. Core uses busybox init...."

Does anyone know if OpenRC can be used?

Nobody has tried any other init AFAIK. You can probably make any of them work, but it may take tweaking.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
