Hello LM forums.
(Not sure where to put this, so it's in this subforum. If anyone knows where this would make more sense, please let me know.)
Earlier today, I decided to try the impossible and try to kill init via terminal. Here are the results.
Signal 1(SIGHUP), 3-5 (SIGQUIT, SIGILL, and SIGTRAP), 7-10 (SIGBUS, SIGFPE, SIGKILL, and SIGUSR1), 12-29 (SIGUSR2 to SIGIO), and 31 (SIGSYS, Bad System Call) did absolutely nothing.
Signal 2 (SIGINT, Interrupt) rebooted the system.
Signal 30 (SIGPWR, Power Failure) shut down the system (analogous to the halt command).
Signal 7 (SIGABRT, Process Aborted) and Signal 11 (SIGSEGV, Segmentation Fault/Segment Violation) both caused a kernel panic.
This post is for informative purposes only. I am not responsible for any loss of data by trying any of this. When I did this I had absolutely nothing important to save or anything. If you DO try this, I STRONGLY ADVISE you to save any work you have open.
Also, I am new to these forums.
