a UNIX init scheme with service supervision
runit is a replacement for SysV-init and other init schemes. It runs on Debian GNU/Linux, *BSD, MacOSX, and Solaris, and may be easily adapted to other Unix operating systems. runit implements a simple three-stage concept. Stage 1 performs the system's one-time initialization tasks. Stage 2 starts the system's uptime services (via the runsvdir program). Stage 3 handles the tasks necessary to shutdown and halt or reboot.
The runit programs are compiled and linked statically with the diet libc on architectures the diet libc is available for.
See http://smarden.org/runit/ for more information.
This package does not replace the /sbin/init binary. To do so you need to follow the documentation or install the runit-run package.
