== Description ==
  runit-run is a package which replaces the SysV init scheme with one based on runit. (http://smarden.org/runit)
 
== Usage ==
  This package creates two run levels by default, /etc/runit/runsvdir/runit-run-default and 
  /etc/runit/runsvdir/archlinux-default.  Upon install it will link /etc/runit/runsvdir/default to runit-run-default,
  which will only start two getty's, tty2 and tty3.  If you want the standard archlinux behavior, you are encouraged
  to copy the archlinux-default directory to one of your own naming (perhaps by hostname). 
    cp -a /etc/runit/runsvdir/archlinux-default/ /etc/runit/runsvdir/your_hostname
  Then to try this runlevel, stop cron and syslog ng and
    runsvchdir your_hostname
  If all looks well, you can make this the new default runlevel with 
    ln -sf /etc/runit/runsvdir/your_hostname /etc/runit/runsvdir/default

  Runit does not restrict the number of runlevels you can have, any directory in /etc/runit/runsvdir/ can be used as
  a runlevel, with runsvchdir <thedirectory> doing the changing.  On boot whatever runlevel 'default' is linked to
  will boot, unless you use a modified kernel command line, runit only cares about the very last word of the kernel
  command line, if it matches a directory in /etc/runit/runsvdir, that runlevel will boot instead.

== Support ==
  You can find Death_Syn or bougyman in #archlinux on freenode.
