InitNG on Fedora

Filed under
Linux

InitNG is one of the most often mentioned possible init replacements. Since it is available as a package in Fedora Extras it can be easily tested. Running on Fedora Core 6 it shows quite some bugs - but impressive speed improvements. In the meantime, a wiki page to bring Upstart to Fedora has been created and filled with first information.

After the IBM summary of Upstart and InitNG I got curious about possible improvements - and started playing around. First I played a bit with Upstart because their concept convinced me most. However, I wasn’t able to bring it up and running because I’m not fit enough on some init basics.

However, I set up a wiki page at the Upstart wiki. Hopefully others will join and solve the problem currently existing.
While playing around I noticed that InitNG is part of Fedora Extras. Therefore I gave it a try, and was pleased by the result! There was a minor bug preventing the system to totally come up, but that was easy to fix.

Still, some things are not working like they should.

Full Story.
