Furthermore, why do you employ bash for calling another program? It's standard to use sh (#!/bin/sh) if you don't use bash-specific commands and constructs, and I don't see them here. If you care for portablility, such a script is an absulute no-go. Furthermore, in order to perform shutdown -p now it's more convenient to use the sudo command (from ports) and add a rule (for maximum security) for the specific user who you want to be able to run this command. Finally, it's possible to place the user in question into the group "operator", then he can perform the above command without needing (1st) sudo and (2nd) bash. Look at the permissions of the shutdown program: -r-sr-x--- 1 root operator /sbin/shutdown* Members of "operator" are +x for this binary. -- Polytropon Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
