NAME

       init - a UNIX process no 1

SYNOPSIS

       init [ 0 | 6 ]

DESCRIPTION

       runit-init  is  the  first process the kernel starts.  If runit-init is
       started as process no 1, it runs and replaces itself with runit(8).

       If runit-init is started while the system is  up,  it  must  be  either
       called as init 0 or init 6:

       init 0 tells the Unix process no 1 to shutdown and halt the system.  To
              signal runit(8) the system halt request, runit-init removes  all
              permissions  of  the  file /etc/runit/reboot (chmod 0), and sets
              the execute by owner permission of  the  file  /etc/runit/stopit
              (chmod 100).  Then a CONT signal is sent to runit(8).

       init 6 tells  the  Unix process no 1 to shutdown and reboot the system.
              To signal runit(8) the system reboot  request,  runit-init  sets
              the  execute  by owner permission of the files /etc/runit/reboot
              and /etc/runit/stopit (chmod 100). Then a CONT signal is sent to
              runit(8).

EXIT CODES

       runit-init returns 111 on error, 0 in all other cases.
