Load Order Info Needed

This page needs the information about appropriate daemon load order, or a link to the necessary info. Thanks. KitchM 21:47, 5 August 2009 (EDT)

Make the load order right is difficult. It is the very reason to create event based init system such as systemd and upstart. -- Fengchao (talk) 07:47, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

List Thanks

This list is coming along nicely, and is darn handy. Thanks to all who are contributing. - KitchM 16:30, 26 July 2010 (EDT)

Guide

Maybe there should be some sort of guide that outlines how to create a custom daemon... - Tehsusenoh 17:34, 15 November 2010 (EST)

I believe Writing rc.d scripts is intended to fulfill this need, but needs some attention/expansion. -- pointone 20:49, 15 November 2010 (EST)

HAL & DBUS

I'm confused now. Does hal start dbus, or does dbus start hal? - KitchM 18:51, 20 November 2010 (EST)

The HAL daemon script starts dbus, because hal depends on it. You should specify dbus manually anyway, so when you remove HAL (once whatever software still depends on it is updated), things still work. thestinger 19:20, 20 November 2010 (EST)
