Re: reboot complains about /dev/initctl

We will need our own initscripts package or whatever anyway, so if

Until such own initscripts package is made, is using sysvinit our goal?
If not, then it's better to not include halt and reboot in sysvinit
when it's build for hurd-i386. If it is, halt and reboot should be
excluded from hurd, and sysvinit's halt and reboot should assume -f in
hurd-i386 (until someone patches things). In any case, sysvinit
packages provide things like update-rc.d and runlevel, which we need
until our own initscripts is cooked.
