      Multi-init antiX 23.1 x64 minimal respin (582 Mb) contains sysvinit+runit+s6-rc+s6-66+openrc, fits in CD

      Inspired by the pioneering work of @ProwlerGr.

      I started with my antiX 23.1 x64 minimal iso (<600 Mb), which contains sysvinit init, and then manually installed and set up runit, s6-rc, s6-66, and openrc from .deb files from @ProwlerGr’s experimental init-diversity repository. Also did further optimization.

      Resulting in

      iso size: 582 Mb

      contains inits:

      sysvinit (default)
      runit
      s6-rc
      s6-66
      openrc

      kernel: 4.9.0-326-antix.1-amd64-smp
      Minimal firmware
      English only
      no headers
      no dkms

      Instructions:
      After installation, launch the “setup multiinit.desktop” icon on the desktop to
      1) further set up s6-66 and
      2) enable the grub-multi-init-enabler.
      The grub-multi-init-enabler will set up grub to allow you to boot using either sysvinit or runit or s6-rc or s6-66 or openrc, upon reboot.

      Use the reboot and shutdown icons to reboot and shutdown, respectively. You could set up quick keys in icewm to perform these operations easier.

      Note:
      I have set up and confirmed so that sysvinit and runit have no logging of runsv programs in this iso. This will save your hard drives from constant input-output disk writes. As a result, all inits in this iso have very quiet i/o disk writes.

          Thank you calciumsodium and ProwlerGr along with all others who helped make this possible.

          If this will boot on some “fun devices” I will, in disregard of minimal footprint add LibreWolf
          and Ungoogled Chromium with ad blocking then pass it around some users as a make older usb sticks
          useful surf option.

          If I just say multi init I will get a blank stare from most candidates, need to arouse some curiosity
          so they get playful :-)…
          Second aim is to push the privacy friendly browsers and u Block.

            We have a list of respins .
            it would be great if you after such modifications , publish the new respin.
            it is actually a respin of a respin .
            but does it matter?
