I have my suspicions regarding this working as you describe. As the order isn't related to the filename but to the REQUIRE tags inside the file. It is actually a non-trivial thing to make something run last. It seems like it should be easy but the system doesn't work that way. For example, adding a requirement for bgfsck (which was also last on my system when I did this) moved bgfsck down the list... and still left dhclient 4th from last. In fact, it took the addition of: # REQUIRE: bgfsck bsnmpd bridge bluetooth to actually make it the last thing run. And that is not a sure thing either... as soon as the system is updated it is likely to change. You could edit /etc/rc and add a skip for dhclient (to prevent it from being run) and then a couple lines to get just it (with rcorder -k) at the very end of /etc/rc to execute it at the very end. You would need to add a keyword declaration in /etc/rc.d/dhclient It's extremely non-standard but if absolutely required, it would work. Or there probably are other ways. Still, the exact order of scripts [under the current system] is not meant to be fixed and static. It is meant to be flexible so things can be added and removed without worry. -Kevin _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
