      I have updated how antiX uses runit to remove as much dependency on sysVinit as possible.

      Is it correct to assume that you have removed all rc[X].d folders and anything in /etc/init.d is now unusable? This means that all sysvinit services will not be usable, correct?

      Are there other changes (runit-core or other functions related to runit) not mentioned?

      Related to services: There are still services used in Debian (and for example, VPNs installed through the antiX Package Installer) that have not been ported to runit, but do come with a sysvinit service file. If installed in the new antiX-runit version, they will be unusable and the users will not know why (they will have to create a runit service for this package themselves), when these programs already “work on antiX with sysvinit”.

      I have a suggestion instead. Re-enable all rc[X].d folders and basic sysvinit functions already available in previous antiX-runit versions and instead change files /etc/runit/2 and /et/runit/3. Make it so it is optional to start and stop rc2.d services in runit-stage 2 and 3. This will have the exact same effect as removing all those sysvinit services, but will still give the user the option to re-enable sysvinit compatibility.

      There are various ways to do this. One option is to create a file in /etc/default named “runit.only” and have stage 2 file /etc/runit/2 check for it before deciding to load the sysvinit services.

      In line 34 of /etc/runit/2, it could look like this:

      	if [ "$runsv_dir" != solo ] && [ ! -f /etc/default/runit.only ]; then
      		/lib/runit/async-timeout /lib/runit/run_sysv_scripts '/etc/rc2.d'
      	fi

      The same for stage 3 file /etc/runit/3, you could re-add the option in line 25, and it could look like this:

      # Stop final sysv scripts (if runit.only not created)
      if [ ! -f /etc/default/runit.only ]; then
      	echo "Stopping services in /etc/rc$LAST.d ..."
          /lib/runit/stop_sysv_scripts "/etc/rc$LAST.d"
      fi

      You are already setting the LAST variable in said file, so no extra changes needed.

      This is just one possible option, but I believe it is valuable to keep the sysvinit compatibility and to “disable” it if a user wants speed by changing a variable or creating a file (like the example /etc/default/runit.only I mentioned).

        @anticapitalista – thanks for accepting my commits- but I just noticed that I messed up when uploading a file: “on.png”, my mistake, ended up in yad-goodies root… it should be inside the “bin” sub-folder, right next to “off.png”. Sorry…

        Edit: I’ll probably take next week off from doing antiX related stuff- I need a break. But I’ll keep an eye out for the forum. I think nothing from my end requires attention, other that that misplaced image file… I think all my scripts are working perfectly, nothing broken, no bugs. The only contribution I’m sorry to not have seen picked up was my update-reminder script, but, oh well, antiX is shaping up great as is.
        I’m positive that I forgot to report something about antiX here… but it will come to me, eventually… I know it’s something I reported on the beta2 thread…

        P.

          Installed successfully.

          When I booted live, I did not realize that a 5.10 kernel was included, so when I booted live, I had no Internet whatsoever.
          I tried installing and the installation was successful.

          As I’ve been seeing recently, the Connman/cmst combination has not been working for me for perhaps a month, and that remains the same when I installed this image, but Ceni works fine.

          I’ll go back with the Live image and see if I can select a kernel, in which case I can look at networking live.

          Meanwhile, on my installed instance, I have been able to copy nearly all of my previous configuration back to this system and everything except cmst is working fine, at least the things I’ve tested thus far.

            A minor thing.

            In the /usr/share/slimski/themes/antix folder, there is no en_US file. Not sure if that will affect those what want to use the antix slimski theme.

              Can I ask why the runit services getty-tty3, getty-tty4, getty-tty5, getty-tty6, and getty-ttyS0 are enabled as defaults in this antiX23 b3 when those runit services are disabled as defaults in the previous betas? The previous betas seem to work well without these specific runit services enabled.

              I removed those runit services mentioned above, similar to the setup in the previous beta versions. I do not see any performance difference.

                I’m happy to say that I rebooted with the image and carefully selected the 6.1 kernel;
                the good news is that:
                1) the 6.1 kernel CAN indeed be selected during live boot
                2) Connman/cmst work PERFECTLY from the live image, which is very good.
                3) I am able to use the package installer from the live image and I installed Chromium,
                which I am using to write this message.
                4) my bookmarks can be imported into this live image from other partitions this live image can “see” as it’s running.

                I’m using a full Frugal setup; haven’t exited yet, but to this point it’s working fine.
                So the report card from me is positive; the only thing that DIDN’T work in the installed instance was Connman/cmst and it DOES work in the live instance, which may mean that something I’ve done has impacted it’s installed behavior; that’s neither here nor there since the program actually works, and it HAS worked in the past on my systems.

                More to come as I check out the live modes and persistent states.

                  The full Frugal persist that I set up worked as hoped and I’m using the browser and configuration that I added prior to the saved persistence; very good!

                    More good news! I went back to the installed instance. Since connman/cmst works in the Frugal instance, I went back to the services that are started; no wonder cmst wasn’t starting a Connman daemon; the Connman services were not enabled, so I enabled them in the runit services and then ran cmst and it connected to the service I desired as it did in the live instance, so 1) problem solved and 2) the only issue affecting my typical work use cases is also fixed; I could definitely use this instance as my every day system even easier; the only problem with connecting to Wifi with Ceni is that it takes a pretty long time; now that I’ve fixed up the stuff that was not configured, all is well and things are working fine.

                    Until we get another image to try out (that’s IF we do), this is my every day antiX 23 at this point.
                    Of course I’ll be happy to try out as many things as I can too.

                        I am running live from a DVD that I burned of an iso-snapshot image that I created of a modified system.
                        This live system has the getty-tty3, 4, 5, 6, and S0 runit services removed. I also had the audio changed. I also copied all the wifi information from the various computers that I have collected and placed them all in the /var/lib/connman folder of this system. Now when I boot this DVD on any of these computers, it automatically loads the network without having to input the password. Runs very good.

                          Great feedback so far.
                          Thanks to all.

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

                          antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

                            I’m a new user here, after finding out about Antix it seems the answer to all my needs. I was planning on trying out either v22 or the 23 beta but I created my account today and then see this final release !!

                            Sorry I do not have anything to contribute right now, but I plan to install this on an older Chromebook, after I have done the process to remove ChromeOS firmware etc, which will take me a while, but I don’t think I need to look for the ‘best’ distro anymore.

                            If I may ask, I realize these questions have probably been answered before, but wanted to ask beforeI try the latest release –
                            – is there any reason to consider base vs full if my pc has enough ram? also is it recommended to remove the unneeded apps from full? e.g removing the other wm’s/browsers etc?
                            – are there recommendations (either here or another site) about users transitioning from systemd which is default everywhere to runit, and any issues faced?

                            Thanks for this great distro and all your hard work!

                              Since you are new I’d go with full.

                              Good luck. Chromebooks can be a bitch.

                              This version is the next one I am gonna try on mine because of pipewire.

                              I usually have to jump through hoops to get sound working on mine. Hoping I get lucky this time.

                              Edit: Figured I’d use this post for feedback

                              Conman worked OK for me. Just booted this. Got excited when I saw pulse audio and pipe wire like used in MX . My sliders are moving when on youtube watching music in pauvcontrol.
                              Just no sound yet. Give me time to play with stuff 1st since I just booted up.
                              Sound test in antiXcc still crashes instantly after opening it.
                              I’m posting here so wifi works, Blueman manager even opened a window to tell me bluez failed to open because it cannot detect my internal bluetooth adapter. Before I had nothing. If I get sound working later. This version will probably be my runner.

                                I’m a new user here, after finding out about Antix it seems the answer to all my needs. I was planning on trying out either v22 or the 23 beta but I created my account today and then see this final release !!

                                @ecr.
                                Sorry to rain on the parade a bit, but as anti said in the first post:

                                I repeat this is NOT a final version, but a beta.

                                If anything this version is likely less finalized than the prior released beta version as it introduces a newer adaption of the runit init system that has not been broadly tested. Hence this thread is looking for input on this newer adaption to make sure it is at least on par if not better than the prior beta before building more finalized versions.

                                  I am sorry that it is not an installation operation.
                                  I’m trying with Live USB.

                                  Like up to Beta2, I can listen to Poor Man’s Radio Player 🙂
                                  But there is no volume icon in the system tray.
                                  How can I get the volume icon back?
                                  I don’t know anything about system of sound.
