Re: How to switch yocto INIT_MANAGER from systemd to sysvinit #dunfell

Swapna Nannapaneni

Thanks Robert and Raj!!

I am using Yocto 3.1 Dunfell release.

You are right about the .bbappend file. Changed the name in the overlay to new-ver.bbappend  and no longer see the warning. 

Tried setting  INIT_MANAGER  = " sysvinit" in build/conf/local.conf but looks like generated rootfs has init file pointing to init -> ../lib/systemd/systemd

Please find out which layer is adding this bbappend you could use

bitbake-layers show-appends sysvinit

It seems recipe version is newer perhaps and the bbappend is still made
for older recipe, these things happen when you mix release branches for
different layers.
