I'm trying to use
runit on my SheevaPlug running Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty. There is a helpful tutorial at TechRepublic (Use runit to supervise Linux services) that walks through the process of setting it up, but it says:
edit /etc/inittab and add:
to the bottom of the file. This will start (and re-start, if it ever exits) the /sbin/runsvdir-start program.
I found a post saying that inittab isn't used in some ubuntu versions. I can install/use
update-rc.d, but I don't really know what I'm doing or how to translate the above statement into arguments for either tool. Any pointers?
