sinit - suckless init
sinit is a simple init. It was initially based on
Rich Felker's minimal init.
I wanted to get rid of Busybox init on my toy distro.
There are 3 signals that sinit will act on.
SIGUSR1: powers off the machine.
SIGINT: reboots the machine (or alternatively via ctrl-alt-del).
SIGCHLD: reap children
To see how sinit integrates with the init scripts, then have
a look at .
