How to go back to openrc? [Solved]

Post by osoloco » Fri Jun 28, 2013 3:44

I have changed to boot with systemd, however since then I found my system is working slower. I will like to go back to openrc in order to check if that is the cause. However when I try to go back to openrc I get the folowing error:

Code: Select all

# eselect sysvinit set sysvinit && eselect settingsd set openrc
Setting the sysvinit implementation to sysvinit
!!! Error: Target "openrc" doesn't appear to be valid!
Setting the settingsd implementation to openrc
!!! Error: Target "openrc" doesn't appear to be valid!
exiting


What am I doing wrong?

I've just tried this to see what happens (I get no great difference whichever I use) but I reversed the order of settings.
I used

Code: Select all

eselect settingsd set openrc
and then

Code: Select all

eselect sysvinit set sysvinit

Try this:

Code: Select all

eselect sysvinit set 2


As for settingsd: I used to use

Code: Select all

eselect settingsd set 1


but it seems to be gone as an eselect module, because eselect-settingsd (entropy package) got replaced by openrc-settingsd, which has nothing to do with eselect (true?). Don't know if the first command I mentioned does the trick, or if you need something else. Try it?

eselect-settingsd is no longer needed.

Dumb question from me,
how do I know which my system is using. I am fully upgraded with kernel 3.9.? and kde 4.10.4 all updated from weekly repo.
What is so good about systemd anyway?
I guess I must have missed something recently....

Code: Select all

eselect sysvinit list


The one that is in use has an asterisk (*) next to it.

Thanks for that, it is selected for :

Code: Select all

christine # eselect sysvinit list
Available sysvinit implementations:
  [1]   systemd
  [2]   sysvinit *
dave-sabayon christine #


How should I change it? I did try your eselect settingsd set 1 command, but it didn't change anything, after reboot?

Ok, I changed it, having found your previous posts.... I am now set to boot with systemd...

What should I see change? What are the advantages to a user? I have read stuff that is way beyond me on the wiki...


thank you

Your boot time should improve (or stay the same, depending on many factors), and your boot splash won't work anymore (picture at the beginning stays, but no progress bar and black screen for most of the boot process).

And you don't use rc-update anymore to configure your services, but systemctl.

OK, thanks for that, I use Tux as my bootsplash, and he still winks and the computer does its bit, as it did previously. Didnt notice it being quicker, but maybe it was....

Thanks for the help
