Hi Marty,

Thanks to the preceding link, I got my (former)
sysvinit->OpenRC->Daemontools box to boot runit->OpenRC->runit.
It's a circa 2008 commodity box (Manjaro 8.11 64bit OpenRC distro) that
boots from Grub Menu to lightdm in 15 seconds, and shuts off from lxde
to no power in about 6 seconds.

Over time, I'll migrate more and more tasks from OpenRC to runit. I
pretty much understand what runit is doing: It's actually pretty
intuitive if you know daemontools.

I'm just barely starting to understand this stuff, so if anyone has
questions, perhaps I can help or at least point in the right direction.

By the way, if anyone knows a way to print a list of OpenRC-spawned
processes and their process dependencies, please let me know. That will
be key in moving more processes over to runit.

And thank you very much Marty: That was a very valuable link.
