7. Setting Up System Bootscripts

7.1. Introduction

This chapter details how to install the bootscripts and set them up properly. Most of these scripts will work without modification, but a few require additional configuration files because they deal with hardware-dependent information.

System-V style init scripts are employed in this book because they are widely used. For additional options, a hint detailing the BSD style init setup is available at http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/hints/downloads/files/bsd-init.txt. Searching the LFS mailing lists for “depinit” will also offer additional choices.

If using an alternate style of init scripts, skip this chapter and move on to Chapter 8.
