Does anyone know the difference between init and telinit ?
The man pages give the same help about both.

# /sbin/telinit is linked to /sbin/init. It takes a one-
# character argument and signals init to perform the appro-
# priate action. The following arguments serve as direc-
# tives to telinit:
# The init binary checks if it is init or telinit by looking
# at its process id; the real init's process id is always 1.
# From this it follows that instead of calling telinit one
# can also just use init instead as a shortcut.

finding out where the customisation of the xdm
