Once I publish 0.42.1 PKGBUILD it will have that, but there is still much to do before I upload that.

See my wiki user page[1] and forum thread[2] for more info.

Please port openrc-sysvinit to optional dependencies. Because from version 0.25 openrc has its own initialization system "init=/usr/bin/openrc-init" and works fine without inittab and even parallel with systemd

Updated to 0.38.1 .

When booting with systemd/libsystemd 239.0-2 there are some problems on my system

Dbus takes a long time to start, avahi-daemon fails. Console login times out, login with autostarting X does wpork, but i also very slow. I'm ignoring systemd & libsystemd updates for now, while trying to figure out what's wrong.

If there are still people using this besides me, please post your results with systemd 239 & openrc .

added bash-completion files, they've been present in source for a long time already but no one seems to have noticed this package didn't install them.

updated to 0.35.5

systemd-style tmpfiles support is now in a separate package, opentmpfiles .

Please, go spread your FUD elsewhere, and don't use testing if you can't manage breakage.

Lone_Wolf, i don't think that openrc is to blame for the segfaults. it's just that openrc and all init scripts i tried segfaulted with libc-2.22 being the culprit after my update. i just couldn't start my system or repair it for that matter.

its also true that other packages were broken by the ncurses update but there is a difference if i just have to recompile some packages or if i have to start up a rescue system because my init is broken.

since systemd TOO segfaulted after installing and only ld /lib/init showed a missing link for some library i had to reinstall before even systemd started up properly, its even more difficult to foresee if this wouldn't have happened either way.

eNTi , while i agree openrc on arch should get more attention, i'm not sure your libc segfaults have to do with openrc.

Below are the glibc updates i had this year, none of them gave me any problems.
Or am i looking at the wrong package ?

If the first time "openrc was broken by an arch system update" refers to the ncurses6 update, that update broke many aur pacakges.
