kdeinit - KDE process launcher
kdeinit is a process launcher similar to init used for booting UNIX.
kdeinit is used to start all other KDE programs. It can start binary
program files as well as kdeinit loadable modules (KLMs).
When kdeinit starts for the first time it launches dcopserver,
klauncher, kded and some additional programs specified on its command
line in the startkde script (normally kcminit and knotify).
The kdeinit master process can be used to start additional KDE programs
via kdeinit_wrapper, kshell and kwrapper.
KLMs are dynamic libraries that work like binary programs but can be
started more efficiently. Starting KLMs via kdeinit is much faster and
more memory efficient because kdeinit is linked against all libraries a
standard KDE application needs. To start a KLM kdeinit forks and loads
the dynamic library.
Do not start kded
Terminate when no KDE applications are left running
directory with KLMs (kdeinit loadable modules)
