I booted my desktop today and got dumped to a command line instead of xdm. At first I thought it had crashed, but then I found this:
Code:
~ $ rc-status
Runlevel: default
 local                                                                                                 [  started  ]
Dynamic Runlevel: hotplugged
Dynamic Runlevel: needed
Dynamic Runlevel: manual
 local                                                                                                 [  started  ]

(which is still showing even after I manually started everything)

This doesn't make any sense to me, it booted fine yesterday and the only system change I've made since then is updating a 32-bit chroot, which shouldn't have any effect whatsoever on the outside system.

Edit: it works if I disable rc_parallel. Doesn't explain why it broke in the first place though.

Everything's still in /etc/runlevels, that was the first thing I checked.

Would be nice if there was some documentation on how OpenRC works. The manpages just talk about the API and there's nothing at all in /usr/share/doc.
