Bullseye with Openrc as PID1

This is coming to you from a Bullseye installation that uses openrc-init as PID1. To get it working I started with debian-bullseye-DI-rc1-amd64-netinst.iso and installed a bare minimum. Then I followed the instructions by Head_on_a_Stick in this thread. After conversion to openrc-init and proving it I added Openbox with Tint2.

Additional help came from Arch Wiki and Gentoo.

Also of use is an installation of Artix Linux which I look at to see how they did it.

It is important to prove PID1; it is easy to be fooled. To prove it use

Code: Select all

$ cat /proc/1/comm
or

Code: Select all

$ ps -ef | grep openrc-init
