NAME

minit - a UNIX process no 1  

SYNOPSIS

minit

 

DESCRIPTION

minit is a possible first process the kernel starts

to use minit as system init, first read available documentation in /usr/share/doc/minit and then add the parameter init=/sbin/minit to your kernel command line.

lilo users need to add it to the append="something" option in /etc/lilo.conf,

grub users can just append it to their "kernel image options" lines.

 

USAGE

minit will by default do nothing except starting the minit service defined in /etc/minit/default which usually contains a file named depends specifying which services are to be started at bootup.
