Starting a service under sysvinit available for systemd .deb file

Trying to use a VPN service under porteus, the script is only available for .deb package.

Is it complicated to start a service under sysvinit from the info provided by systemd instructions included in the .deb package?

i shouldn't think it too hard.. look at <.deb pkg>/usr/lib(64?)/systemd/user/<?>.service
if the ExecStart= line is simple enough, it could possibly just go in /etc/rc.d/rc.local ...

Thanks for the reply. Finally, I returned the chromecast device as I already had a LG intelligent TV. Chromecast was obsolete, especially that I had a google TV device.

Thanks.
