10 You should be using the rc command tho init should work in theory.
11 Example, "rc single" or "rc default" or whatever runlevel you want to
12 switch to. That is without the quotes tho.
14 I did notice earlier that when I switch to single, it is not unmounting
15 some file systems for some reason. When I try to switch back to
16 default, rc sort of pukes. If I unmount everything first, it switches
17 cleanly. I think openrc has some . . . weirdness still.
19 You can check out the rc man page for more info. That help any?
