I dont know if its the right place to ask this question.
I use fedora 15. I built a vanilla kernel. I observed that it calls the
'init' instead of systemd. Then I edited the grub entry making
init=/bin/systemd which works fine. But i want to know if i can get the
patch to the vanilla kernel that does the change in the source. I know a
place (linux/init/main.c:init()) but was not sure if anything else needs to
be done, i am sort of a newbie in terms of modifying the kernel .
Or if my first observation is wrong.
I have one other question, is init patched to call systemd in fedora 15 or
is it done in the kernel?
On a systemd system /sbin/init is a symlink to /bin/systemd.
$ rpm -qf /sbin/init
$ ls -l /sbin/init
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 14 6. Apr 22:02 /sbin/init -> ../bin/systemd*
