I have been a subscriber for the past few days and now find I need a
little push in the right direction.
My environment: (not Ubuntu)
A basic Gnu/Linux implementation using:-
glibc-2.4, gcc-4.1.1 and binutils-2.17
modified sysVinit script format
hard-wired /dev tree
direct network connection
After installing upstart-0.2.1, pilfering/changing a few files from
system-services and upstart-compat-sysv I was able to boot this
partition. ..success is a sweet drink. I renamed the event file
control-alternate-delete to ctl-alt-delete and was able to do a
keyboard reboot with no problems.
Everything 'seems' to work and I now have a platform I can use to
safely explore the features of upstart. and move to a sysVinit free
Today's question.. (implies more in the queue)
running <initctl events> does not display "kbdrequest" when
alt-uparrow is pressed., is this normal? The extensive documentation
provided (the source code) didn't shed any light on the problem.
More information about the Upstart-devel
