OpenRC Introduction Part 1

By Erik Letson, Aug 24th, 2020 (blog index)


I just released part 1 of my OpenRC introduction video series on YouTube. In this first video, I go over the basics of what OpenRC is, and about how you can use OpenRC facilities to get information about daemons. I then go over how to use OpenRC to start, stop, and restart daemons. Check out this series if you want to learn about the init system used by Gentoo, Artix, and more. To the best of my knowledge, this is thus far the only video series about OpenRC on YouTube. I will be uploading part 2 next week, most likely, though if I finish the video early it may come out early. Stay tuned!
