:The existing very bazaar and local policy in rc.diskless1 is Just Wrong; :and looks like no other Unix diskless configuration I've ever seen. I :plan on committing this patch to negate this. : :The use of an MFS /var should also be settable. Otherwise installing :ports(packages) is just a total PITA.
While you've got rc.diskless* broken open it would be great if you could implement an override rc variable that completely overrides the script. i.e. so someone can set 'rc_diskless_script' in /etc/rc.conf (on the server) and /etc/rc will run that instead of /etc/rc.diskless1 if the machine is booted diskless. The problem we face is that the rc.diskless* scripts are simply not flexible enough to cover everyone's needs (or even most people's needs) and we need to provide a mechanism to allow the sysad to write his own without forcing him to edit a 'system standard' script (i.e. /etc/rc.diskless1 itself). In anycase, if you don't have time to add this I'd appreciate a head's up after you are done-and-committed your diskless scripts and I will have a go at it. -Matt To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
