1 Porting systemd To New Distributions
2
3 HOWTO:
4         You need to make the follow changes to adapt systemd to your
5         distribution:
6
7         1) Find the right configure parameters for:
8
9             --with-rootprefix=
10             --with-sysvinit-path=
11             --with-sysvrcnd-path=
12             --with-rc-local-script-path-start=
13             --with-rc-local-script-path-stop=
14             --with-kbd-loadkeys=
15             --with-kbd-setfont=
16             --with-tty-gid=
17
18         2) Try it out. Play around with 'systemd --test --system' for
19         a test run of systemd without booting. This will read the unit
20         files and print the initial transaction it would execute
21         during boot-up. This will also inform you about ordering loops
22         and suchlike.

24 CONTRIBUTING UPSTREAM:
25
26         We do generally no longer accept distribution-specific
27         patches to systemd upstream. If you have to make changes to
28         systemd's source code to make it work on your distribution:
29         unless your code is generic enough to be generally useful, we
30         are unlikely to merge it. Please always consider adopting the
31         upstream defaults. If that is not possible, please maintain
32         the relevant patches downstream.

34         Thank you for understanding.
