6 No if you don't use --confirm-spawn AFAIK; the whole parallel start
7 thingy is deeply integrated in systemd's design. And, why would you
8 want to start things sequentially?
10 And BTW, people who configure OpenRC to start things in parallel are
11 going against the recommendations of its own maintaner:
15 "rc_parallel has never officially been declared a stable feature (see
16 the comments in rc.conf regarding this)."
18 OpenRC has never been able to reliable start services in parallel; on
19 the other hand, you can argue that systemd was designed specifically
20 to start services in parallel.

25 Yes; you need to specify it on GRUB, LILO, or whatever boot loader you
26 use, although I've never used it.
