      I have a dumb question. If I add a new service package, do the newer init options require special service files to get them started up, or do they use existing systemd service files or sysVinit scripts?

      Not a dumb question at all.
      The beauty about the s6 inits is that they are very modular (true to the UNIX philosophy)

      A good read in regards to 66 service files can be found here (attention to section “A word about the @execute key”)

      As I read this you could pretty much use a sysvinit script, a bash script to resolve a systemd file, or a simple execline command.

      s6-rc is very similar

      There have been talks about the creation of a tool that parses systemd service unit files & converts them to s6 ones, but I understand it won’t happen any time soon:


        Hi @eric,

        Thanks. No rush. I am still trying out the system.

        In the boot@system, I also tried setting tz=/etc/localtime, which would be CST for me. But it still gave GMT time.

        This will not help at all . The TZ should be something like Europe/Amsterdam. In short what you can find at /usr/share/zoneinfo (or equal folder on Debian).
        You can see what a service do with the status command under the field ‘Start script’, e.g.

        66 status boot@system:local-time

        In this case it will show information about the boot@system:local-time service which is responsible to create a symlink at /etc/localtime to the correspond folder at /usr/share/info (maybe this path is not correct on Debian)

        Another question.

        I see that the service files that are active are in /var/lib/66/system/svc/ folder. Is this correct?


        I know that you are still working on a 66 service manager. No rush. Could you please provide some tips, in the meantime, on how to manually enable/disable a service in s6-66? I tried to manually delete some of these services that I don’t use in this folder just to see if it would work. It did not turn out well.

        Never, should i say NEVER, touch any files manually. This is the best way to break the 66 eco-system. If you want to modify something use the corresponding 66 command. Generally speaking, the only file which sysadmin/user should touch is the service frontend file.

        Now, to disable a service simply do

        66 disable <service_name>

        The service will be marked disabled and no started up automatically at 66 tree start invocation or at boot time. If you do ’66 tree status’ you will continue to view the service but marked disabled.

        If you want to completely remove the service from the 66 eco-system do

        66 remove <service_name>

        The service will be completely removed. Please use caution with that command, as it will delete logs, configuration files, and all other components of the service, leaving only its frontend file intact.

        If you want to free the ressources used by a running service, do

        66 free <service_name>

        Before doing that, open a terminal with htop inside (or any process supervisor) and look what’s happens at 66 free command invocation. It will disappear for the process tree.

        Note: all these commands above deal with the interdependence of the service (depends, requiredby), so when you do ’66 remove <service>’ it remove the service but also services marked at requiredby field of the service and it do it recursively.

        To see the requiredby field of the service, use

        66 status <service_name>

        and look for its ‘Required by’ field. You can be a little less confusing between all fields doing

        66 status -o name,requiredby <service_name>

        This only display the field ‘name’ and ‘requiredby’.
        You can have supplementary information using the ‘-g’ option

        66 status -go name,requiredby <service_name>

        This display the ‘requiredby’ field in graph mode in the order of start process. The first one on top of the list is the first one started and the last one is the last started

        You also can get a little more information about the dependency graph of the service, doing

        66 status -go name,requiredby,depends -d2 <service_name>

        This display the requiredby and depends field in a graph mode but it also display the dependency of the dependency and it do it recursively. You can increase this recursion by increasing the number used at ‘-d’ option like ‘-d4’

        Note: this graph ability is only available with 66, s6-rc or any s6-rc implementation on different distro(AFAIK) do not provide a complete and accurate view of the service or a complete view of the machine service state (try 66 tree status -g -d2)

          The TZ should be something like Europe/Amsterdam.

          Hello @eric,

          I get it now. I was not using the correct format.

          In boot@system, I set




          Now it works. In icewm taskbar, I get the correct CST timezone.

          Thank you.

          Thank you also for your instructions on disabling the 66 services. I will just disable, not remove these services.


            Once I was able to figure out how to set time zone and how to disable services in s6-66, I am really happy with my setup.

            Now, I am equally confident in all four systems of s6-66, s6-rc, sysvinit, and runit.

            This is my s6-66 pstree:

            $ pstree
                      │                        └─desktop-session───icewm-session───icewm

            Some notes to watch out for.

            1. When I disabled the bluetoothd-log, bluetoothd, nmbd-log, nmbd, smbd-log, smbd, and ufw services in s6-66, I noticed that the logging runsv nmbd and runsv smbd services were activated in runit. I found out because my hard drive on this test system was loud when disk input/output is active. So I went into runit service manager and disabled the start and log of these services. Now my runit system is quiet after that.

            2. When I configured boot@system in s6-66 to have swap=!yes, and then reconfigure boot@system, upon reboot into s6-66, the boot crashed saying that fatal error of swap activation. So I switched back to swap=!no. I don’t really use the swap much, if at all. No problem for me.

            All in all, really happy with the learning experience and the final product of 4 inits in one. Each I have great confidence in.

              @eric – one more question

              How to set autologin?

              I set .profile to startx as user (now works without issue as does 32 bit 66).
              How to set the console tty to autologin username?

              Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

              antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.



                to autologin on tty1 (change tty1 by your needs)

                66 configure -e <your_preferred_editor> boot@system:tty-rc@tty1

                set cmd_args=!-J 38400 –autologin <username>

                66 reconfigure boot@system:tty-rc@tty1

                The change will be applied at next boot.


                  How to set autologin?

                  Another quick & dirty way is to do it through rc.local

                  sudo 66 configure -e nano boot@system
                  make edit
                  apply change
                  sudo 66 reconfigure boot@system

                  then edit /66/rc.local to something like

                  #!/bin/sh -e
                  /sbin/agetty -a <myuser> 38400 tty1

                    Another way can be

                    create a frontend file at /etc/66/service/autologin-tty@ with the following

                    @type = classic
                    @version = 0.0.1
                    @description = "Launch a tty with autologin for @I"
                    @user = ( root )
                    @options = ( !log )
                    @execute = ( execl-cmdline -s { agetty --autologin @I ${Args} } )
                    Args=!-J 38400 ${Tty}

                    Change the Tty variable to suit your needs

                    Now, start or enable or both like the following replacing <username> by the good one

                    66 enable autologin-tty@<username>

                    Then you can change the tty used by

                    66 configure autologin-tty@<username>

                    Change the Tty variable, then

                    66 reconfigure autologin-tty@<username>

                      You seem to be walking around with ’66’ now. 🙂

                        Absolutely, it has a steep learning curve but it is the most elegant implementation of s6.
                        I really admire your work.


                          Thanks for your kinds word.
                          Don’t hesitate to give me feedback on any issues you may encounter during use, even if you think it’s not a big deal. I encourage you to create a account at Obarun Gitlab instance to do so.


                            I have been using each of the four runit, sysvinit, s6-rc, and s6-66 that I have optimized extensively for my needs.

                            From my observation as one user, of all the tests that I have done so far, the only tiny hiccup is s6-rc with connman. Let me explain. First my system. I started with an antiX23.1 runit pre-final system. I optimized it to my personal needs. Then I used the script in OP2 to install sysvinit, s6-rc, and s6-66. s6-rc and s6-66 installed without any issue. Sysvinit install was a challenge. I had to study @ProwlerGR’s previous isos to study how they set up sysvinit. After a lot of manual modifications, I was able to get sysvinit up and going. After it is all said and done, all four inits performed great.

                            If there is anything wrong that I could see, I would report it. The only thing I see that is off is that sometimes, on some machines, s6-rc boots up with no wifi, but connman is up. I have tested on 7 machines. Runit, sysvinit, s6-66 boots great to desktop on all 7 machines with wifi. s6-rc boots great to desktop on 5 of the 7 machines with wifi. But 2 of the 7 machines would boot to desktop without wifi using s6-rc. But connman is up in both these cases. To correct this issue on these two machines, in terminal, I would type sudo service connman restart. And then I get wifi. Furthermore, I went back to @ProwlerGR’s 20240201 iso, and using s6-rc, these two same machines also booted to desktop without wifi even when connman is up. Could this be something specific to s6-rc because runit, sysvinit, and s6-66 boots great to desktop with wifi on these same machines with the same antiX23.1 operating system?

                            This is just minor because I can overcome it with a simple terminal/key stroke command. But I just thought I report it so that s6-rc can be further optimized in the future.

                            This is my setup for s6-rc:


                              Is it possible to get a link of the code source of you s6-rc service manager application? I would like to see(when i get time) if its adaptable to 66

                                  But I just thought I report it so that s6-rc can be further optimized in the future.

                                  This is my setup for s6-rc:

                                  Can you enable dbus-log & let us know if it makes a difference?
                                  I am thinking that connmand has dbus-srv listed as a dependency, but obviously with dbus-log disabled it can’t really monitor the dbus status, resulting in a blind startup before dbus is ready…
