Linux distribution built using the Portage package management system.
It allows very fine control of which services are installed and running, including the option to choose between systemd or OpenRC as the default init system.
Software suite that provides an array of system components for Linux operating systems.
Its main aim is to unify service configuration and behavior across Linux distributions; Its primary component is a "system and service manager"—an init system used to bootstrap user space and manage user processes.
Computer program that runs as a background process, rather than being under the direct control of an interactive user.
In a Unix environment, the parent process of a daemon is often, but not always, the init process.
Number used by most operating system kernels—such as those of Unix, macOS and Windows—to uniquely identify an active process.
Process ID 1 is usually the init process primarily responsible for starting and shutting down the system.
Safety measure taken by an operating system's kernel upon detecting an internal fatal error in which either it is unable to safely recover or continuing to run the system would have a higher risk of major data loss.
For example, many Unix operating systems panic if the init process, which runs in user space, terminates.
Computer process whose parent process has finished or terminated, though it remains running itself.
In a Unix-like operating system any orphaned process will be immediately adopted by the special init system process: the kernel sets the parent to init.
Software suite that provides several Unix utilities in a single executable file.
As it is a complete bootstrap system, it will further replace the init daemon and udev (or the latter-day systemd) using itself to be called as init on startup and mdev at hotplug time.
launchd is an init and operating system service management daemon created by Apple Inc. as part of macOS to replace its BSD-style init and SystemStarter.
OpenRC is a dependency-based init system for Unix-like computer operating systems.
Init and service management scheme for Unix-like operating systems that initializes, supervises, and ends processes throughout the operating system.
When running as an init daemon, Runit is the direct or indirect ancestor of all other processes.
