Note: Arch uses systemd by default. No support will be provided for any problems resulting from the use of OpenRC.

OpenRC is an alternate init system developed by Gentoo developers. OpenRC is a dependency based init system that works with the system provided init program, normally /sbin/init. It is not a replacement for /sbin/init.


OpenRC is available in the AUR. You can choose to install either openrcAUR or openrc-gitAUR package. You will also need to install openrc-arch-services-gitAUR (provides service files for use with openrc on arch) and openrc-sysvinitAUR.

The packages will be installed under /etc/openrc instead of the default location of /etc, so that users can switch to initscripts when desired.
