Created attachment 588494 [details]

I had been using /etc/init.d/xdm to start and stop lightdm.

However, when my system shuts down, /etc/init.d/xdm sometimes complains that there is no process associated with it.

I tried to fix it. But, since it is very complex, I ended up creating /etc/init.d/lightdm.

I think it is better for each display manager to have its own openrc init script.
It's very difficult to debug /etc/init.d/xdm
