8.2. System Services

8.2.1. Upstart

Fedora 10 features the Upstart initialization system. All System V init scripts should run fine in compatibility mode. However, users who have made customizations to their /etc/inittab file need to port those modifications to upstart. For information on how upstart works, refer to the init(8) and initctl(8) man pages. For information on writing upstart scripts, refer to the events(5) man page, and also the "Upstart Getting Started Guide":
Due to the change of init systems, it is recommended that users who do an upgrade on a live file system to Fedora 10, reboot soon afterwards.
