There should be a way to make DEFAULT do what I want.

Answered correctly before Greg's reply:

Thank you very much for playing the game, but no Felix, that is NOT correct. It merely make system V init available. It dos NOT make it default. I know, I tried it just today.
Per the posts I received, I installed that, removed systemd and removing systemd removed numerous packages as systemd was marked as a requirement for them.

I didn't write anything about removing anything, only installing. What I wrote worked here on about a dozen systems, but not by removing _any_ of *systemd*. AFAICT,
sysvinit-init does nothing _except_ make sysvinit the default. From the rpm: "Summary: Provides /sbin/init for sysvinit; Description: Just some symlinks."
In fact this is the actual info output:

Summary : SysV-Style init
Description :
System V style init programs by Miquel van Smoorenburg that control the
booting and shutdown of your system. These support a number of system
runlevels, each one associated with a specific set of utilities. For
example, the normal system runlevel is 3, which starts a getty on
virtual consoles tty1-tty6. Runlevel 5 starts xdm. Runlevel 0 shuts
down the system. See the individual man pages for inittab, initscript,
halt, init, powerd, reboot, runlevel, shutdown, and telinit for
more information.
Distribution: openSUSE 12.1

Odd... I don't see anything that says "Just some symlinks". What are you looking at?
