+ <kilobug> init=/bin/sh hack doesn't work for GNU/Hurd ?
+ <antrik> kilobug: I don't think you can override init on Hurd. the init
+ server is actually involved in bootstrapping part of the system core
+ <antrik> at some point we discussed the possibility to reduce the Hurd init
+ server to *only* do that, and then pass on to standard sysv init... with
+ that it could actually work
+# IRC, freenode, #hurd, 2013-11-29
+ <teythoon> we need to make the bootstrap code more robust and fix the error
+ handling there
+ <teythoon> for example, you can kill the exec server and the rootfs w/o
+ /hurd/init noticing it...
+ <braunr> yes
+ <teythoon> there are plans in init.c to take over the exception port of the
+ essential processes
+ <teythoon> that could help
