In this case, it just means that if you go back to that virtual terminal (with CTRL-Alt-F1 or whatever) you can run more commands outside KDE. I think the rule for scripts in /usr/local/etc/rc.d is that they will all be run on startup, provided they are executable. The convention is to name them "xxx.sh", but I don't know if that is actually required. So a chmod 500 should be the minimum required permissions (-r-x------), and 755 will work OK. -- Personal : Mike.Jeays -at- rogers.com Phone : 613-724-4510 Work : Mike.Jeays -at- statcan.ca Phone : 613-951-9929 FAX 613-951-0395 Web page : http://members.rogers.com/mike.jeays _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
