OpenRC README Installation ------------ make install Yup, that simple. Works with GNU make. You may wish to tweak the installation with the below arguments PROGLDFLAGS=-static LIBNAME=lib64 DESTDIR=/tmp/openrc-image MKPAM=pam MKPKGCONFIG=no MKRCSYS=prefix MKSELINUX=yes MKTERMCAP=ncurses MKTERMCAP=termcap MKOLDNET=yes PKG_PREFIX=/usr/pkg LOCAL_PREFIX=/usr/local PREFIX=/usr/local We don't support building a static OpenRC with PAM. You may need to use PROGLDFLAGS=-Wl,-Bstatic on glibc instead of just -static. If you debug memory under valgrind, add -DDEBUG_MEMORY to your CPPFLAGS so that all malloc memory should be freed at exit. You can also brand OpenRC if you so wish like so BRANDING=\"Gentoo/$(uname -s)\" PKG_PREFIX should be set to where packages install to by default. LOCAL_PREFIX should be set when to where user maintained packages are. Only set LOCAL_PREFIX if different from PKG_PREFIX. PREFIX should be set when OpenRC is not installed to /. MKRCSYS should be set only if you need to specify a default system subtype. The subtype should be set to match the type of environment the file is installed into, not the virtualization the environment is capable of handling. Here is a list of subtypes and their meanings. jail FreeBSD jail lxc Linux container openvz Linux OpenVZ prefix Linux and *BSD prefix system uml UsermodeLinux vserver Linux vserver xen0 Linux and NetBSD xen0 Domain xenU Linux and NetBSD xenU Domain If any of the following files exist then we do not overwrite them /etc/devd.conf /etc/rc /etc/rc.shutdown /etc/conf.d/* rc and rc.shutdown are the hooks from the BSD init into OpenRC. devd.conf is modified from FreeBSD to call /etc/rc.devd which is a generic hook into OpenRC. inittab is the same, but for SysVInit as used by most Linux distributions. This can be found in the support folder. Obviously, if you're installing this onto a system that does not use OpenRC by default then you may wish to backup the above listed files, remove them and then install so that the OS hooks into OpenRC. init.d.misc is not installed by default as the scripts will need tweaking on a per distro basis. They are also non essential to the operation of the system. Reporting Bugs -------------- Since Gentoo Linux is hosting OpenRC development, Bugs should go to the Gentoo Bugzilla: http://bugs.gentoo.org/ They should be filed under the "Gentoo Hosted Projects" product and the "openrc" component. History - by Roy Marples ------------------------ I became a Gentoo/Linux developer in 2004 and wrote the modular network scripts for the Gentoo baselayout package. baselayout is a collection of bash scripts to bring up your computer and its services. Then towards the end of 2005 I found myself as the primary maintainer for baselayout. At the start of 2007, baselayout-2 is announced to the world, re-writing the core of baselayout in C and allowing POSIX sh init scripts instead of forcing the use of bash. By Mid 2007 I have re-written everything, including init scripts, and alpha and pre baselayout-2 snapshots where put into Gentoo. Towards the end of 2007 I retired as a Gentoo developer for reasons I won't go into here. baselayout-2 was still in the pre stage, and aside from the fbsd users, it was masked everywhere. However, I also desired to keep the baselayout-2 project alive, but outside of Gentoo and into other projects such as FreeBSD. As such, the Gentoo Council have allowed the creation of OpenRC under the 2 clause BSD license, managed by me as an external project.
