While reading some info about Systemd, I saw there was an 'emergency' Runlevel, linked to 'emergency.target'. Any idea what it is, and when they use it? Merci
Bonjour. The best write up comes from Red Hat.
The first step in severe problem resolution is rescue mode initiated with:
~]# systemctl rescue Broadcast message from root@localhost on pts/0 (Fri 2013-10-25 18:23:15 CEST): The system is going down to rescue mode NOW!

rescue mode doesn't work and you have to enter
emergency mode. This mounts foot file system as
read-only, doesn't mount any other local file systems and doesn't enable network connections. To enter emergency mode use:
This is an abbreviated summary so please read the Red Hat link for more detailed
All-in-all I think we all hope we never have to use
rescue target in the first place or
emergency target second place.
