just an observation.
Since the process to upgrade systemd, that has been going on for some weeks, I have noticed on several different systems that init commands have either no results in an action, or disable some functions.
My solution has been to not use the commands.
Disfunctional init listed:
init 3 turns off all active connections to the adsl modem but affects nothing else that I can tell.
init 5 && exit does not actually restart the x server but does exit the upgrade process under apt-get.
My solution is to not use them (init) under apt-get.

when I log out of KDE and go to the command line from the log out screen I noticed every time I used init 3 the adsl modem logged the specific computer off line.

It was then I tried the upgrade process without first using init 3, with just the command apt-get update... then it would work without logging me off. (of course I had to restart the computer to get back to the process prior to doing this.)

not a complaint just an observation, because it is interesting behavior.

I will do this for the systems until systemd is fully functional.

I do have a question.

Is this the end of init -- with its eventual replacement with systemd?

As a temporary workaround I replaced 'init 3' with 'service kdm stop' and 'init 5' with 'service kdm start' so that I can still dist-upgrade with all the graphics stuff down, while keeping the network functional. Maybe it's not the best solution but it worked for me.

That seems to work well enough.
I have done some research and all of these changes and the eventual decline of init, is all on track.
It will take some time but as yet it is just some adjustments for us.
I have no complaints as I believe this is just being aware and being alert to these changes.

As far as I can see, I have nothing to excessively worry about.

Just being aware of what is going on so our machines stay on top of the changes as they happen, as usual.

Its all good. Very Happy
