In this package you will find the Debian GNU/Linux FAQ, which gives
frequently asked questions (with their answers!) about the Debian distribution
(Debian GNU/Linux and others) and about the Debian project.
Some answers assume some knowledge of Unix-like operating systems.
However, as little prior knowledge as possible is assumed: answers to general
beginners questions will be kept simple.
The document is supplied in HTML, PDF, PostScript and plain text.
This is the translation in French of the original English FAQ (available in the
package debian-faq.)

* 2017-11-30: customizing.sgml: Add section "booting": "How does a Debian
system boot?", with patch with notes on systemd contributed by Alan Lee,
and further improved by Vincent McIntyre and Justin B Rye.  Thanks!
Add pointers to relevant 2014 CTTE decisions (The systemd debate).
Rename section "booting": "Every distribution seems to have a different
boot-up method. Tell me about Debian's." to "sysvinit": "And how about
Debian and traditional System V init".  Drop section "custombootscripts":
"What other facilities are provided to customize the boot process besides
rc.local?": it is relevant for System V init only and therefore does not
belong here.  Add section 'altboot': "And are there yet other ways of
booting a Debian system?" mentioning e.g. openrc.  (Closes: #787152)

This also fixes a FTBFS: "Addendum po4a/add_fr/commentaires.add does NOT
