That's why I want something that I can install fast. Gentoo certainly
isn't the right choice for that. If Kubuntu fails, I can just reinstall
and not format /home. It doesn't take to long and I'll be back up and
running. I already keep a fairly up to date sysrescue so having
something for some other distro wouldn't be a huge issue.
Right now, if Gentoo fails to boot because of the init thingy, I have no
idea how to fix it. None at all. I know the basics of what it does but
no idea how to fix it when it breaks. That's where I am now with regard
to my other post. I can't su to root when using the init thingy but can
when I don't use the init thingy. I have no clue where to even start to
fix it. Is it dracut itself? Is it some script? Is it some option I
gave it that conflicts with something else? I have absolutely no idea
why but I know it has something to do with me using the init thingy
since it works fine without it.
Me clueless since this is something I tried to avoid in the past and not
sure why it is needed now either.
More questions than answers for sure.
