add and remove services to and from a runlevel
[-s , -stack ] add service [runlevel ... ] [-s , -stack ] delete service [runlevel ... ] [-u , -update ] [-v , -verbose ] show [runlevel ... ]
OpenRC uses named runlevels. Rather than editing some obscure file or managing a directory of symlinks, exists to quickly add or delete services to and from from different runlevels. All services must reside in the /etc/init.d or /usr/local/etc/init.d directories. They must also conform to the OpenRC runscript standard.
- add service
- Add the service to the runlevel or the current one if none given. Services added to the boot runlevel must exist in /etc/init.d
- delete service
- Delete the service from the runlevel or the current one if none given.
- Show all enabled services and the runlevels they belong to. If you specify runlevels to show, then only those will be included in the output.
- -v , -verbose
- Show all services.
- -u , -update
- Forces an update of the dependency tree cache. This may be needed in the event of clock skew (a file in /etc is newer than the system clock).
If the -s , -stack option is given then we either add or remove the runlevel from the runlevel. This allows inheritance of runlevels.
