Debian FAQ question/error
I'm writing a document describing the boot methods for the severals distributions.
I've different informations, please help me:
In the Debian FAQ last version (http://www.debian.org/doc/FAQ/debian-faq-12.html#ss12.5) it is written "The configuration file for
init (which is /etc/inittab) specifies that the first script to be executed should be /etc/init.d/rcS".
A older version of this FAQ (aug-96, see http://22.214.171.124/~erik/debian/debian-faq-11.html) tell: "The configuration file for
init (which is /etc/inittab) specifies that the first script to be executed should be /etc/init.d/boot"
In another (paper) document, I read it is the file "/etc/rc.d/rc.S".
Then, 3 documents, with 3 filenames and 3 directories.
Could you help me to:
- choose the right versions
- tell me more: from which Debian version it has changed
- is /etc/init.d/boot the old name of rcS ?
Thx for your help.
Congratulation for your work.
