It's said Funtoo will create a new init system, is there any news on that?

 

I ever came across VoidLinux.eu who uses runit and works impressive.

UHmm ... impressive in what way?   It is not dependency based and does not seem to support parallel start-up.  It doesn't look like its very "intelligent" - I assume it uses plain shell scripts to configure services ... compare to Gentoo/Funtoo's OpenRC which have most of the intelligence abstracted into a library, with configuration in a separate directory.   I suppose you might be able to start OpenRC with the runit init daemon, but why?  My /sbin/init is 37K.

 

Where did you read that Funtoo is changing init?

The words are on Funtoo FAQ: http://www.funtoo.org/Funtoo_Linux_FAQ

 

We are planning to develop a new OpenRC-style init system

Interesting. I never noticed that. I wonder what the plan is? I'm guessing the new features would be using control groups?

Anyone look into Android's init daemon?  Its actually kind of interesting.
