# Global OpenRC configuration settings
+# Set to "YES" if you want the rc system to try and start services
+# in parallel for a slight speed improvement. When running in parallel we
+# prefix the service output with its name as the output will get
+# jumbled up.
+# WARNING: whilst we have improved parallel, it can still potentially lock
+# the boot process. Don't file bugs about this unless you can supply
+# patches that fix it without breaking other things!
# Set rc_interactive to "YES" and you'll be able to press the I key during
# boot so you can choose to start specific services. Set to "NO" to disable
