Scripts in /usr/local/etc/rc.d are processed using a two-pass method. New rc.subr-style scripts are detected by the presence of a "# PROVIDE:" line, and are ordered based on dependencies listed in REQUIRE and BEFORE lines. Old-style scripts have to end in *.sh, and are run in alphabetical order after new scripts. Files not ending in .sh without a PROVIDE: line are ignored. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
