      3 .Os
      4 .Sh NAME
      5 .Nm sinit
      6 .Nd simple init
      7 .Sh DESCRIPTION
      8 .Nm
      9 is a simple init.  It is configured by modifying
     10 .Dq config.h
     11 and recompiling the code.
     12 .Ss Init sequence
     13 By default
     14 .Nm
     15 will execute
     16 .Dq /bin/rc.init .
     17 You can chain your init scripts together at that point to allow for
     18 single-user and multi-user operation.
     19 .Ss Signal handling
     20 .Nm
     21 will respond to the following signals:
     22 .Bl -tag -width xxxxxxxx
     23 .It USR1
     24 Default action is to initiate the shutdown sequence by
     25 executing
     26 .Dq /bin/rc.shutdown poweroff .
     27 .It INT
     28 Default action is to initiate the reboot sequence by
     29 executing
     30 .Dq /bin/rc.shutdown reboot .
     31 .It CHLD
     32 Reap children.
     33 .El
     34 .Ss General considerations
     35 Running the
     36 .Dq rc.shutdown
     37 script directly is not recommended.  If any
     38 process in your session has stale filesystem references then it is
     39 likely your init scripts will fail to unmount the filesystem cleanly.
     40 It is recommended to signal
     41 .Nm
     42 via a wrapper script.
     43 .Pp
     44 .Nm
     45 does not clear utmp records.  The version of
     46 .Xr getty 8
     47 in ubase clears the utmp entries on the specified tty before it
     48 spawns the given program, usually
     49 .Xr login 1 .
     50 .Pp
     51 .Nm
     52 does not restart
     53 .Xr getty 8
     54 or interact with it in any way.  You will need an external
     55 respawning mechanism to restart it.
