Hi everyone,

First of all, thank you for providing such an excellent linux distribution. I was just wondering if there would be a way to switch the 'init' system in Q4OS to 'runit' instead of systemd?  Thank you.

Re: runit

While it might be possible, it wouldn't be easy.  The KDE version would require a LOT of rebuilding of it's libraries and dependencies to run without systemd.  The Trinity version MIGHT be easier, I don't really know for sure how much systemd has been integrated into it.  Runit (in some form) is available in the Debian repos, but I've never tested to see if it actually works.

q4os machine:  Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro:  Intel Core-M 5Y70/8GB DDR3/512 GB SSD/Qualcomm QCA9377AC + BT/Intel HD 5500/13.3" 3200x1800 LCD (running @1920x1080)
