systemd is a new init system being written by Lennart, Kay and many others. If you want to help integrating systemd into openSUSE, see the systemd status page.

Systemd takes over the entire boot process. The script /etc/init.d/boot is completely ignored, and 'startpar' is never called. The sysv initscripts including /etc/init.d/boot.* are handled natively by systemd.

Every service that installs a native systemd service file, completely disables that way the sysv init scrip when systemd is used. The newer versions of D-Bus and udev install these service files, and therefore the scripts in /etc/init.d/ and all the symlinks there are ignored for these services. Over time, most commons services will not longer use init scripts if systemd is used to bring up the system.
