initng - a full replacement of the old and in many ways depricated sysvinit




Initng is a full replacement of the old and in many ways deprecated sysvinit tool. It is designed with speed in mind, doing as much as possible asynchronously. In other words: It will boot your unix-system much faster, and give you more control and statistics over your system.

The basic premise is that startup commands can be launched as soon as their dependencies are met. This limits the effect of bottlenecks like I/O operations; while one program is performing I/O, another can be utilizing the processor. Initng tracks the individual service dependencies in its configuration files.

It is designed to use a minimum of system resources and to boot your system quickly and safely.

lilo users need to add the line 'append="init=/sbin/initng"' in their /etc/lilo.conf, grub users can just append 'init=/sbin/initng' to their "kernel image options" line in /boot/grub/menu.lst.


Initng is the first process the kernel starts. It has no parameters. It will start the services defined in /etc/initng.
