Safely installation of upstart on emonSD?

I’m wondering how to deal with daemons started at boot on emonSD.
Since it is raspbian based, it should be compatible with upstart.
So I tried to install upstart via apt-get, but I’m afraid of crashing my system.
Installation of upstart would lead to removal of the traditional “systemd-sysv”.
What is th eimpact? May I safely install upstart?

Thanks in advance,

Why are you wanting to install upstart?

Pre-Jessie Raspbian has always used SysV init and changed to systemd with Jessie. Upstart was an alternative method used in Ubuntu for a while before also changing to systemd. I’m not sure you’ll find anyone that has any experience of using upstart with the emonSD.

Systemd is backward compatible with SysV so there should be no need for upstart unless you have a specific need for it.

I see. It seems I’m a bit outdated.
“Systemd” is also the way to go?

Easily done :slight_smile: , it will probably all change again next year!!
