I have a sh script im working on that is going to be able to run by the init/rc process. That same script can also be run after the system is started.
I need a way to have the sh script detect WHERE in the boot process the server is when it is being executed. for example, once a login prompt appears there should be a getty running. prior to that time there shouldnt be a getty running, and if there isnt a gettty running, then the script must be called from the rc process and therefore I can do X instead of Y which I do when the system is fully operational. This is my thought process but I dont understand how to carry it out, or if the thought process actually makes sense. is there a better way for me to do what Im trying to do, and if there isnt and Im on the right track, how do I do what Im asking? _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
