OT:

Hi,

I send a separated reply for the OT.

It's not an official Arch package, it's from the user repository.
However, in this case it makes much sense to put rtirq to /bin, apart
from this it's as close as possible to upstream. I suspect that Rui
stayed with initd, for backwards compatibility with scripts many
musicians have written in the past. Suse likely has dropped
systemd-sysv-generator, so the location might not cause an issue.

If it's moved to /bin you can get e.g. the status, not the unit status,
but the rt prio status, without running

  /path/to/rtirq status

you only need to run

  rtirq status

for the rtirq script and the way it is used, it's the best location,
apart from a backwards compatible location in init.d.

To chose /lib/systemd/system/ wouldn't make sense.

I sent a request to Ubuntu Studio devel:
