I haven't used ppp(8) - I prefer pppd(8) - so I'm not familiar with ppp.linkdown.sh. If this is a shell script, there's a couple of things that I've seen cause strange script behaviour: lack of default environment and lack of TTY. This usually shows up in scripts that work fine at the command line, but fail under other circumstances (such as crontabs).
Does it take more than 2 minutes at the command line? Have you tried adding set -x at the start to see where it's failing? If it's called by rc.shutdown the output should be to the console, but I'm not sure what ppp(8) does with script output. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Daniel Rudy" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Subject: Re: Controlling init on shutdown/reboot > Somewhere around the time of 12/01/2003 03:32, the world stopped and > listened as Rob contributed this to humanity: > > >>From line 99 of /usr/src/sbin/init/init.c, > > > > #define DEATH_SCRIPT 120 /* wait for 2min for /etc/rc.shutdown */ > > > > and on line 1576 it looks like you can change this with the sysctl > > 'kern.shutdown_timeout'. > > > > But 2 minutes is a long time for a shell script - are you sure that > > everything is working correctly? > > The problem is that a ppp.linkdown.sh script needs to do something and > it's not doing it.
