Bug#727708: OpenRC + Hurd status


Just a short message to inform everyone that, with the latest sysvinit
package from Sid (eg: 2.88dsf-47) and the latest OpenRC package from
Experimental (eg: 0.12.4+20131230-8), then Hurd just boots fine with
OpenRC! :)

Here's how to do it:

apt-get install initscripts sysv-rc sysvinit \
    sysvinit-core sysvinit-utils
update-alternatives --config runsystem

The later command tells hurd to use sysv-rc (otherwise it continues to
use the Hurd specific boot hack thing...). Then just install OpenRC on
top of that:
apt-get install openrc

I'm not sure installing sysv-rc is even needed. Probably installing
OpenRC first, then the other sysvinit packages would work as well.

There's nothing more to it: it just works (tm)! :)

Hoping that the status update and our porting efforts are appreciated,

Thomas Goirand (zigo)

P.S: My experience with Hurd was ok-ish, though the "console randomly
doesn't come up" bug was really frustrating, especially considering that
Hurd only uses ext2. :(
