NAME

       minit - a UNIX process no 1

SYNOPSIS

       minit

DESCRIPTION

       minit is a possible first process the kernel starts

       to  use  minit  as  system  init, first read available documentation in
       /usr/share/doc/minit and then add  the  parameter  init=/sbin/minit  to
       your kernel command line.

       lilo  users  need  to  add  it  to  the  append="something"  option  in
       /etc/lilo.conf,

       grub users can just append it to their "kernel image options" lines.

USAGE

       minit will by default do nothing  except  starting  the  minit  service
       defined  in  /etc/minit/default  which  usually  contains  a file named
       depends specifying which services are to be started at bootup.
