Init not calling /etc/rc.0

Init not calling /etc/rc.0

Post by Michael C Du » Mon, 15 Jan 1996 04:00:00

        I am having a problem with my system refusing to call
/etc/rc.d/rc.0 when shutdown or reboot is issued.  I am using the
SysVInit-2.50 package from sunsite for init and shutdown/halt.  I would
like init to behave like my old Slackware init (the one released with
Kernel 1.2.1).  

        Is there another init package that I could compile??  Do I have
the right paackage, and I just need to find some docs on it??

        Some of the odd behaviour:

Inittab is setup to intercept ctrl-alt-del.  It uses the same syntax as
on my other system which works fine ... but when I issue c-a-d, the sysem
goes into runlevel 6 and sits there.  Here is the apropriate line for
        ca::ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t3 -rf now

Shutdown now -h  appears to shutdown the system, with out umounting my
filesystems.  It apears not to parse rc.0

reboot  appears to simply do a warm boot with out umounting any filesystems.

        Any ideas??

1. difference between /etc/rc.sysinit and /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit ?

What is the difference between /etc/rc.sysinit and /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit?
I am using Redhat 8. I did a diff on them and they are identical.
/etc/rc.sysinit is apparently a copy of /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit since it
says that it is that file, even though it's not (see below).

# /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit - run once at boot time

I want to change something in whichever of these scripts is run at
bootup, but I don't know which one gets run.

8. FTP Site

9. Command not found in /etc/rc.d/init.d/pppd

10. Command not found /etc/rc.d/init.d/pppd

11. Who calls /etc/rc.d/rc.local
