So with my LightCube OS project (which is actually nearing first alpha
release), I am at the point where I need to decide what to do for boot
scripts. I have been using LFS and BLFS scripts up to now, but I'm not
sure if I will continue to do so in the future.
(I also played with systemd, which is really cool, but it's not 100%
yet, in my opinion, nor does my OS generally need it, due to its goals).
It depends on a couple of things, really. Firstly, what's the goal of
LSB compliance with the scripts, and how far away is that? I want to
meet that, if possible.
Secondly, is there any likelyhood that LFS/BLFS will want to adopt
chkconfig for their scripts. It's dead easy to set up, but it does
require modifying the scripts to contain runlevel and order information,
and a description (no big deal, really). chkconfig also is a super small
package with no need to use crazy dependencies (unless you want to use
the semi-graphical ntsysv program).
If LFS moves in a certain direction, I may just continue using your
scripts, otherwise, I'll have to devise my own.
