You didn't give much information there. Not feeling terribly psychic today, I'll just tell you what the manual says. o Scripts are only executed if their basename(1) matches the shell globbing pattern *.sh, and they are executable. Any other files or directories present within the directory are silently ignored. o When a script is executed at boot time, it is passed the string ``start'' as its first and only argument. At shutdown time, it is passed the string ``stop'' as its first and only argument. All rc.d scripts are expected to handle these arguments appropriately. If no action needs to be taken at a given time (either boot time or shut- down time) the script should exit successfully and without producing an error message. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
