    Hi, First of thank you for the perfect guide. I would like to know instead of SysVinit, can we use systemd in exam? If yes how can we change runlevel with systemctl? Thank you for reading

  7. @Baloshi,
    I take it you’re referring to 14.04, and yes, you are correct. Inittab has been replaced by /etc/init/rc-sysinit.conf in that version.

    hey…you people are awesome…i just want to correct that latest Debian and Ubuntu System don’t have inittab configuration file….its been replaced by /etc/init/rc-sysinit.conf
