Subject: [gentoo-user] Runlevels, ordering initscripts and running them in background
Date: Wed, 16 May 2012 08:42:00
1 Hello everybody,
3 I was wondering if the following is possible:
4 - Add a lot of daemons to a newly created runlevel post-default
5 - Switch to it after the xdm is started (or after some time)
7 I want to do this, so that I do not have to wait while non-crucial
8 services are being started (e.g. fcron, bitlbee, ntpd to name a few).
9 Maybe it is possible to somehow prioritize the initscripts?
11 Another related question is that I come from Arch and there I could just
12 give the *order* of the daemons/initscripts to start and some of them
13 could be started and 'in background'. Is it possible to do that with
14 openrc? I saw the rc_parallel option in rc.conf, but I do not know,
15 whether I need anything else.
17 Thanks for help,
18 Ignas A.
