This project is abandoned. I’ve been thoroughly convinced that this is a problem being solved well by existing systems, notably the s6 process supervision suite of programs.

This repository will continue to stay up for archival purposes.

beginning-scripts, scripts for the Beginning init system

A repository containing daemon scripts for the Beginning init system.

Beginning is still a work-in-progress. If you use the scripts located here, they should be updated in lockstep with Beginning.



Before installing, install Beginning or these will be of no use.

  1. git clone https://github.com/somasis/beginning-scripts, or download a release

  2. make

    The makefile follows GNU Makefile standards, and can be influenced by variables such as DESTDIR, bindir, libdir, libexecdir,docdir, sysconfdir, and prefix. Variables for directories are changed in the source files.

    The top of the Makefile contains a full list of variables.

    In order for these scripts to work correctly, you must pass the same variables that were passed to Beginning’s makefile.

  3. make install
