I'm struggling to understand boot process on Yocto linux (Dizzy) which I got as pre-built image. It boots in xfce; pidof /sbin/init shows "1" which should mean that it's SysVinit. However, there is no /etc/inittab file and systemd process is started.

I just want to change default runlevel to 3.


Yocto can create images utilizing either systemd or SysV init. In either case the program used as init will have pid 1. As you are seeing a systemd process on your system you will have a configuration utilizing systemd. Systemd has no run levels perse.
