{{Note|Arch uses [[systemd]] by default. If you use openrc, please mention so while asking for help.}}
 
 
 
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 {{Ic|/sbin/init}}. It is not a replacement for {{Ic|/sbin/init}}.
 
 
 
== Installation ==
 
 
 
OpenRC is available in the [[AUR]]. You can choose to install either {{AUR|openrc}} or {{AUR|openrc-git}} package. You will also need to install {{AUR|openrc-arch-services-git}} (provides service files for use with openrc on arch) and {{AUR|openrc-sysvinit}}.
 
 
 
The packages will be installed under {{Ic|/etc/openrc}} instead of the default location of {{Ic|/etc}}, so that users can switch to [[initscripts]] or [[systemd]] when desired.
 
 
 
Once installed the packages you need to add init=/sbin/init-openrc in the kernel boot line of your bootloader configuration. If you want to go back to [[systemd]] replace it with init=/bin/systemd.
 
 
 
== Configuration ==
 
 
 
For booting with OpenRC add {{Ic|1=init=/sbin/init-openrc}} to the kernel line of your bootloader.
