Remove of Daemon in Display Manager
In these edits, you remove Daemon method without an Edit summary. I am just want to double check why it is removed. Is it broken? Is it have some problem or disadvantage? -- Fengchao (talk) 12:34, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
- It isn't broken... it is just incorrect and to load via rc.conf. You lose the ability to use init for its purpose. init 3 should be straight into console, and init 5 should be the multi-user/graphical. A Display Manager (while it can be run as a daemon) is not a daemon and shouldn't be treated like one. They should be loaded through inittab, where they can actually behave properly. In fact, you could setup several display managers in inittab if you wanted to. Sorry I didn't include an Edit summary, but the fact that you can load DMs through rc.conf has been stripped from most actual display manager pages already, I was just cleaning up extra ones as I find them or they are mentioned in #archlinux... is there a macro to get the User: User talk stuff like there is for --> 16:26, 24 September 2012 (UTC) ? thanks
- Just use
- I know inittab is better long time ago, but just know the reason now. :) It is better to clearly telling people that it is incorrect and give the reason. Maybe something like "This method is deprecated and users of this method should change to inittab method."
