NAME¶finit, init, telinit - Fast init for Linux systems
SYNOPSIS¶finit [OPTIONS] [q | Q | 0-9]
DESCRIPTION¶Finit is a simple alternative to SysV init and systemd, reverse engineered from the EeePC fastinit ten years ago by Claudio Matsuoka - "gaps filled with frog DNA ..." .
Finit supports runlevels, process monitoring, and starting services on demand using the built-in inetd, or by triggering a condition. E.g., "don't start this service until basic networking is available", or "wait until syslogd has started".
