A new release of the Grml live disc Debian-based distro has been released and is ready to download. The new version swaps file-rc as the init software to systemd. As the release announcement states that “grml-live (the build system for creating Grml-based Linux live systems) still supports non-systemd systems using file-rc, though we don’t plan to maintain this in the long run”. This release also shifts the 32bit build from i586 to i686.
For more information, including the thought process behind switching from file-rc to systemd, head to the release notes, available to read at https://grml.org/changelogs/ README-grml-2017.05.
Grml 2017.05 jumps on the systemd init bandwagon. If there is such a thing.
