Press 'e' on the grub entry, add

init=/bin/bash

Tested with 13.1 in a vm. Rebooting is a problem though, shutdown,
reboot, halt --reboot don't work (because systemd is not running!
WHAT A STUPID setup!), exit/ctrl-d, ends in a kernel-panic in the vm.
Haven't checked it out more now.

Fails in same manner on Rawhide, even using fullpath commands, though error
from latter is different: "Failed to talk to init daemon". C-A-D doesn't work
either. Great thing that systemd. :-(

If you use "init=/bin/bash" there is no systemd in use. It is completely
out of the picture, so don't blame it when it ain't done nothing.

You mean besides subsuming everything it can into the monolith that it is,
and forcing changes to other things that make them incompatible with sysvinit?

You'd
have exactly the same problem with systemv, because it is not running.
There is just one process running: bash. And of course there is not init
daemon, that's bash.

In 11.4 booted with init=/bin/bash on cmdline:

/sbin/reboot reboots the box
/sbin/halt -p turns the box off
C-A-D reboots the box

None do more than produce error message with Lennart's wonderfully evolved
sysvinit replacement on Rawhide. :-( Interestingly, C-A-D does produce reboot
on 13.1, but not on 13.2. :-p
