My understanding is /usr/local/etc is for local specific configurations so that a site specific configuration in /etc can be loaded and appended by the stuff in /usr/local/etc. Wouldn't symlinking one to the other force the same config files to be loaded twice??? And if so wouldn't that possibly confuse the daemon? Maybe I'm not entirely clear on how all that works myself. but my understanding is /etc is read first and then appended by /usr/local/etc. Although I can see how this would allow NFS to be used on diskless clients using generic /etc while allowing system specific configurations to be stored elsewhere and linked in as needed. I am just under the impression that /usr/local/etc is not for this purpose. of course I'm not the brightest tool in the shed... -brian _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
