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 MKSELINUX=yes MKSTATICLIBS=no MKTERMCAP=ncurses MKTERMCAP=termcap 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 /. 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 If you installed OpenRC from your chosen distribution, you should report bugs directly to them. For example, if you use Gentoo and emerged OpenRC then you should reports bugs to http://bugs.gentoo.org. History - by Daniel Robbins --------------------------- The Gentoo modular network scripts were created by Daniel Robbins for Gentoo Linux 1.0_rc6, in development during most of 2001 and released in September 2001. After their development, the dependency-based initscript system was maintained by a number of senior developers, primarily Martin Schlemmer (azarah). excerpt from http://www.gentoo.org/news/en/gwn/20040426-newsletter.xml by Grant Goodyear: "My recollection is that one of woodchip's more impressive early feats was the complete replacement of all of the init scripts in Portage for Gentoo Linux 1.0_rc6. Through 1.0_rc5 Gentoo had used fairly standard rc scripts modified from Stampede Linux, but for 1.0_rc6 Daniel Robbins (drobbins) and Martin Schlemmer (azarah) had created a new dependency-based init script system that is still used today. Within a span of days Donny rewrote every single init script in the Portage tree and committed new masked packages to await the release of 1.0_rc6. Thanks to woodchip (and drobbins and azarah, of course) the transition to the new init scripts was nearly painless." Roy Marples became a Gentoo/Linux developer in 2004 and maintained the modular network scripts for the Gentoo baselayout package. Then towards the end of 2005, he became the the primary maintainer for baselayout. At the start of 2007, Roy Marples announced the ongoing development of baselayout-2, containing a rewritten initscript code in C and allowing POSIX sh init scripts instead of forcing the use of bash. By Mid 2007 Roy Marples had re-implemented the Gentoo initscript design created by Daniel Robbins, using an entirely new code base. Alpha and pre-release baselayout-2 snapshots were added to Gentoo's Portage tree as an optional component. Towards the end of 2007, Roy Marples retired as a Gentoo developer Baselayout-2 was still in the pre stage, and aside from the fbsd users, it was masked everywhere. However, Roy Marples desired to keep the baselayout-2 project alive, but outside of Gentoo and into other projects such as FreeBSD. As such, the Gentoo Council permitted Roy Marples to release OpenRC under the 2 clause BSD license, managed by him as an external project. Around mid-2010, Roy Marples decided to no longer maintain OpenRC. At this point, he transferred development back to Gentoo, which continues to maintain the scripts. In addition, Daniel Robbins continues to maintain an independent version OpenRC for Funtoo Linux, which includes a Funtoo-specific network configuration system.
