Interesting article on boot ordering



http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-boot.html

Really interesting concept - using make to sort out the dependencies for startup and to run things in parallel when possible. With just a few moments of thinking about it, I could imagine a core Makefile that lists out the dependencies (lots of crap needs network, nfsd needs portmap, etc) and then each runlevel just defining a target that lists the services needed and including the core and voila! Certainly not exactly that simple but an interesting thought. Could also provide a means to solve the problem discussed recently about network interface ordering and doing things after their boot.
