as of 2014 el6, embedded packaging is handled with opkg.
Anything that should execute at boot is in
. First setup network and central logging, so we can read any errors. Initialize basic system (post opkg configuration, set correct time, etc). Initialize hardware drivers. System services. User Sevices.
- 01: ldconfig
- 05: network
- 10: syslog
- 20: basic system setup. opkg, ntpd
- 50: hardware init (except network). ec_irpts, cti_serial
- 60: system services: dropbear
- 90: legacy: nfsinit
A few hardware kernel modules are required. These packages are kernel specific. They are named kmod-$KERNELTYPE-$MODULE and always have the same version as the kernel. Any release of a kernel requires to recompile ALL kmods.
