update-metainit - Generates init scripts
update-metainit [--remove initname [--purge] ]
Metainit solves the problem of writing good init scripts. Instead of
manually creating these important files, they are derived from a declaritive
description in the metainit files in /etc/metainit. These files can be
shipped with packages or created by the local administrator.
If update-metainit called without argument, it will
regenerate init scripts for all the files in /etc/metainit. The
generated files contain a large warning in form of a comment that they will
be overridden. Modifications are preferably done in the files in
/etc/metainit and made effective by running update-metainit.
If needed, the administrator can prevent modified init files by removing the
- --remove initname
- This command will remove any generated and non-modified scripts that were
created by the metainit file with the name initname.
- Only usable with --remove. Will remove the generated files even if
