      I actually did it a DIFFERENT way this time; after enabling the Firefox Repository as indicated in their notes, I downloaded the current release, the Developer Edition and the Nightly edition, then I used our toolbar management tool to add each of them to my personal toolbar. Worked well!

        So each of my posts regarding what I’m doing with Firefox – though I often do them on my other systems, was indeed specific in this case to my freshly installed init-diversity image on my Lenovo X201, and it’s important to me because for a little while it appeared there was an issue somewhere; now I have it all set up as I wish.

        One other thing; it is indeed still mandatory at this point to
        1) boot into the “default” boot entry prior to installing and
        2) run sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-multi-init-enabler in order
        to access all of the diverse init alternatives, but once you do so
        all is well; that answers my question about whether sudo update-grub
        would satisfy the same capability; it DOES NOT.

        I expect this is something that will be resolved as the teams
        collaborate on the issues and the corrections to them; meanwhile
        it’s a fairly simple fix to get this working, then reboot and all
        is available.

            In 5.1 runit now. When I shut down 6.1 runit. The stop button hangs for second.
            Then the screen turns black. No messages. Bluetooth is exhibiting the same behavior as 6.1 runit.

              Thanks for getting us this far. Is this a good place to comment on the iso mentioned in the first post? https://www.antixforum.com/forums/topic/unofficial-antix-23-init-divesity-spin/#post-133293. “antix-23.1_amd64_init-diversity-edition_UNOFFICIAL_20240214.iso”. There are quite a few threads.

              This instruction appears in the first post:
              >>
              – If you plan to install, it is important to boot into the “default” boot entry prior to installing. The installer has unpredicted behaviour breaking a few things (reboot, poweroff) if you install using the non default init entries.
              – To enable the multi-init grub menu after first install from iso just run
              sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-multi-init-enabler
              <<

              Could I perhaps reduce ambiguity with some amendments?

              >>
              – If you plan to install, it is important that the install be be run from the “default” boot entry……..

              – To enable the multi-init grub menu after first install from iso, reboot into your freshly installed system and just run
              sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-multi-init-enabler

              When you next reboot, grub should present all the init-diversity options, for your experimentation.
              <<

              I am assuming that the “sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-multi-init-enabler” is run from the freshly-installed system? Does it matter which init is chosen for the boot/session in which this reconfigure is run?

                Possible pertinent background information: My CPU “Intel 585” singlecore/singlethread Core2 Merom MSI laptop needs the “nolapic” boot parameter. Without this it just does not boot. If this parameter is used in a live boot, it can take maybe 3-15 minutes to complete the boot. Sometimes, I find some benefit from using acpi=off and/or irqpoll in a live session. In my antiX23 Base install, the nolapic parameter, hardcoded into grub, is all I need for a speedy successful boot.

                I mention this because it seems that while the install process may have incorporated my “nolapic” live boot parameter into the first boot, it seems the dpkg-reconfigure did not. I did not actually check, but the first reboot into the freshly installed system worked OK, whereas after the the dkpg-reconfigure, the boot did not get anywhere. Upon checking, I noticed the absence of the parameter from the grub entries.

                After a little more tyre-kicking, I should probably retry this install, and pay proper attention to whether the install actually added the live boot parameter to the original grub entry, before running the dpkg-reconfigure.

                    “>>
                    – If you plan to install, it is important that the install be be run from the “default” boot entry……..

                    – To enable the multi-init grub menu after first install from iso, reboot into your freshly installed system and just run
                    sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-multi-init-enabler

                    When you next reboot, grub should present all the init-diversity options, for your experimentation.
                    << I am assuming that the “sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-multi-init-enabler” is run from the freshly-installed system? Does it matter which init is chosen for the boot/session in which this reconfigure is run?" Because of the FIRST statement, boot from the default boot entry; I do not believe that you can run sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-multi-init-enabler from the live instance, you have to install first, but the issue is that not all the init choices SHOW up once you do the initial installation. Anyway, to make CERTAIN that the issues are rectified, I boot from the default entry BOTH on the Live instance AND the installed instance UNTIL I've had the opportunity to successfully complete the sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-multi-init-enabler on an installed instance; once that's done I've had no issues booting into any of the four init alternatives that have been provided to this point, so I recommend following the instructions precisely until the corrections are made that will hopefully eliminate these temporary restrictions.

                      I like that idea, @ProwlerGr and I’d be happy to try it out, since MX Linux AHS 23 is currently one of my other distributions I have installed; I’d be glad to replace it with an MX init-diversity POC any time! Drop us a line here if that happens; though I use MX Linux, I don’t follow their forum as much as I did in the MEPIS Lovers Forum days! 🙂

                      I appreciate your thoughts:

                          Somehow, the response “I recommend following the instructions precisely” to my reported concern that the instructions seem a bit ambiguous, does not seen entirely constructive. It takes all sorts, I suppose.

                          Moving on…I have focused on kernel 6.1 because it boots faster: I seem to have the same issue as @rokytnji , s6-66 seems to miss my swap partition every time.

                          I my case, I have a spare local partition, and it also misses this every time.

                          To get them mounted, all I have to do is “mount -a” & “swapon -a” , so it seems the fstab is not too far wrong.

                          The other init options, sysv, runit, s6-rc, all seem to mount both without hestitation.

                            s6-66 seems to miss my swap partition every time

                            try running:

                            sudo 66 configure -e nano boot@system

                            Change the value under “Devices” to

                            FSTAB=!yes
                            and
                            SWAP=!yes

                            Then activate that change by running:

                            sudo 66 reconfigure boot@system

                            Let us know if this resolves it for you

                              Thanks for the response, it worked well. Swap & extra data partition are now recognized, and I took the opportunity to experiment with changing my TZ timezone from GMT.

                              A further comment, for my personal documentation:

                              I took the precaution of making a copy of the boot@system file in the folder….it seems it did not like that. It did not complain, but the activation did not work. Perhaps it processed the backup file as well? “temphide.boot@system.temphide”

                              I renamed my backup to bk1.boot@system, ran the reconfigure, the swap was enabled at the end of the process.

                              I renamed my backup to bp.boot@system, ran the reconfigure, swap was disabled at the end of the process.

                              Maybe it processes all the files in the folder in alphabetical order, so boot@system was overridden by “bp.boot@system” or “temphide.boot@system.temphide” ?

                              Disclosure:

                              My shutdown command does not work – perhaps I did not follow the setup instructions precisely enough? Anyway, I have learned something useful about s6-66.

                                @eric created a very useful post today on the original respin thread.

                                In a nutshell only service files should be manually modified, everything else needs to be modified using the 66 commands.
                                66 is almost guaranteed to break if users manually touch anything other than frontend files

                                  Nothing you are doing wrong, the installation I used to create the snapshot had the reboot/poweroff commands working perfectly, however the iso-snapshot for some reason breaks this. I’m sure it will be resolved in time when the “init-diversity” type of releases become mainstream for antiX.
