Strange bootup /etc/rc.{local,net} problem!

Strange bootup /etc/rc.{local,net} problem!

Post by Raghunath K. R » Sun, 06 Mar 1994 03:01:17



Hi!

I have two LINUX boxes running the same SLS 1.03 distribution.
In one of them, I have this strange problem: When it boots up,
it goes thru /etc/rc properly,
but when /etc/rc.local and /etc/rc.net are called, nothing is
echoed on the screen!  In fact, I inserted echo's in the /etc/rc.local,
but even that is not visible! Strangely enough, the daemons are
getting loaded up - all except nfsd, which I am manually running
after boot up. So I never get the message :
/etc/rc.net: hostname...  etc.

The rc.* files are identical on the two machines, both are running
0.99pl14 (recompiled by me to get 128 tasks) from the same distribution.
I have tried all kinds of modifications, but the problem persists!

Anyone have a similar experience, or know what might be the problem??

1. which user does /etc/rc.d/rc.local / rc.sysinit run as?

Im running Enigma and want to set up a systemwide fetchmail daemon ... I
have got the /root/.fetchmailrc file set up fine and need to know where
to put the 'fetchmail' command.

Should I put fetchmail somewhere in either /etc/rc.d/rc.local or
rc.sysinit?  Whereabouts should I put it in?  Are there security risks
here I should know about?
