My bad on this one. The server that still has the startup scripts is not running the latest versions. The versions running are compat4x-i386-5.3_2 and compat5x-i386-22.214.171.124_1. There is anther server here that is running compat5x-i386-126.96.36.199_7 and does not have a startup script. It still works fine. I'm guessing the other response that made mention where the startup scripts are not needed anymore on the later version would stand correct. -- "This message was sent using 100% recycled electrons." _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
