.SH "NAME"
systemd-debug-generator \- Generator for enabling a runtime debug shell and masking specific units at boot
.SH "SYNOPSIS"
.PP
/usr/lib/systemd/system\-generators/systemd\-debug\-generator
.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.PP
systemd\-debug\-generator
is a generator that reads the kernel command line and understands three options:
.PP
If the
\fBsystemd\&.mask=\fR
option is specified and followed by a unit name, this unit is masked for the runtime, similar to the effect of
\fBsystemctl\fR(1)\*(Aqs
\fBmask\fR
command\&. This is useful to boot with certain units removed from the initial boot transaction for debugging system startup\&. May be specified more than once\&.
.PP
If the
\fBsystemd\&.wants=\fR
option is specified and followed by a unit name, a start job for this unit is added to the initial transaction\&. This is useful to start one ore more additional units at boot\&. May be specified more than once\&.
.PP
If the
\fBsystemd\&.debug\-shell\fR
option is specified, the debug shell service
"debug\-shell\&.service"
is pulled into the boot transaction\&. It will spawn a debug shell on tty9 during early system startup\&. Note that the shell may also be turned on persistently by enabling it with
\fBsystemctl\fR(1)\*(Aqs
\fBenable\fR
command\&.
.PP
systemd\-debug\-generator
implements the
\m[blue]\fBgenerator specification\fR\m[]\&\s-2\u[1]\d\s+2\&.
