Does anyone know about upstart

Postby greghar » Wed Nov 21, 2007 7:45 pm

Use to using inittab to set run level at startup but now here now. How do you set run level for boot to level 3 text login using upstart. Not much of any information out there about it. Any help Thanks Greghar

look at my last 2 posts here:

upstart has replaced init, but upstart is not fully featured yet so there is some legacy stuff still.
there is really only one run time level now "rc2.d", but the rcN stuff is legacy stuff and has been left in for simplicity, maybe.
upstart is event based so try to forget run levels and think events. eg: reboot, startup, run, halt.
