DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2005-11
Re: HEADS UP: RC scripts
:just as reminder and note esp. for those running 1.2 systems and willing
:to update to 1.4 in the future. HEAD from today on doesn't depend on RC
:script having the DragonFly keyword anymore. This means that old RC
:scripts in /etc/rc.d will be executed, if they are still present.
:Please keep that in mind if you don't run "make update" before
:rebooting into a new world.
:On the other hand, it removes the need to copy/link RC scripts under
:/usr/local/etc/rc.d (ports) or /usr/pkg/etc/rc.d (pkgsrc), it even
:allows proper dependency handling e.g. for daemons.
If someone has the time, install a 1.2 system then upgrade it to HEAD,
do the 'make upgrade' in /usr/src, and see if any 'old' rc scripts are
being left intact in /etc/rc.d. We can add those files to the list of
files that make upgrade removes.
