Re: init

A lot of things, but in general is does startup everything that is configured in

/etc/rc.config.d

Hope this helps!

Re: init

it would run rcX.d directory
X=run level
it would rukk S and K scripts
S would start the service and K would stop according to run level.

Some other things it also do, when you do init 0 and 6 ie reboot and startup

Thanks,

Re: init

In addition to the rc (startup) scripts, init will follow the instructions in /etc/inittab. Some items are run at bootup only, others are run at specific run levels.
