.TH runit 8
.SH NAME
runit \- a UNIX process no 1
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B runit
.SH DESCRIPTION
.B runit
must be run as Unix process no 1.
It performs the system's booting, running, and shutdown in three stages:
.SH STAGE 1
.B runit
runs
.I /etc/runit/1
and waits for it to terminate.
The system's one time tasks are done here.
.I /etc/runit/1
has full control of
.I /dev/console
to be able to start an emergency shell if the one time initialization tasks
fail. If
.I /etc/runit/1
crashes, or exits 100,
.B runit
will skip stage 2 and enter stage 3.
.SH STAGE 2
.B runit
runs
.IR /etc/runit/2 ,
which should not return until system shutdown; if it crashes, or exits 111,
it will be restarted.
Normally
.I /etc/runit/2
starts
.BR runsvdir (8).
.B runit
is able to handle the ctrl-alt-del keyboard request in stage 2, see below.
.SH STAGE 3
If
.B runit
is told to shutdown the system, or stage 2 returns, it terminates stage 2 if
it is running, and runs
.IR /etc/runit/3 .
The systems tasks to shutdown and possibly halt or reboot the system are
done here.
If stage 3 returns,
.B runit
checks if the file
.I /run/runit.reboot
exists and has the execute by owner permission set.
If so, the system is rebooted, it's halted otherwise.
If
.I /run/runit.nosync
exists,
.B runit
doesn't invoke sync(). This is useful in vservers.
.SH CTRL-ALT-DEL
If
.B runit
receives the ctrl-alt-del keyboard request and the file
.I /etc/runit/ctrlaltdel
exists and has the execute by owner permission set,
.B runit
runs
.IR /etc/runit/ctrlaltdel ,
waits for it to terminate, and then sends itself a CONT signal.
.SH SIGNALS
.B runit
only accepts signals in stage 2.
.P
If
.B runit
receives a CONT signal and the file
.I /run/runit.stopit
exists and has the execute by owner permission set,
.B runit
is told to shutdown the system.
.P
if
.B runit
receives an INT signal, a ctrl-alt-del keyboard request is triggered.
