qq orbit vs for linux 1. if you have a host with initd rather than systemd … you can’t use orbit right? 2. the orbit package only does systemd registration. 3. in fact the package --service=false option does nothing I assume there’s no plans to back add initd support since they’re kinda eol or soon eol lts only? I suppose if I want to run osq official and point it at the fleet server can i just grab the cmdl on a similar but systemd linux flavour and make a flagfile to give to osqueryd from the official osq installer? (i get some flags might need to be file not env like secret , or some paths will change but in principle). then make sure the init refs the flagfile?

Hi! I’ll reach out to the team about potentially adding support for
. We’ve got a detailed guide for enrolling hosts using plain osquery here:
