New cygwin sysvinit package available for download. Init is the parent
of all unix processes. Its primary role is to create processes from  a
script stored in the file /etc/inittab (see  inittab(5)). This file
usually has entries which cause init to spawn gettys on each line that
users can log in. It also controls autonomous processes required by any
particular system.

To install the package, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.  You'll find
sysvinit listed in the "System" category.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: .  I would appreciate it if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.
