Chapter 3 regarding 'Init'

"None of the scripts that actually start and stop the services are 
actually located in /etc/rc.d/init.d. Rather, all of the files 
in /etc/rc.d/rc<x>.d are symbolic links that point to actual scripts 
located in /etc/rc.d/init.d."

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Read Redhat Reference Guide
2.Go to Chapter 3
3.Scan down to description of init process


The component: rhl-rg(EN)-7.1-HTML-RHI (2001-02-14T16:24-0500) was not 
available, so I chose SysVinit...sorry.

I need more information. What exactly is incorrect?

The quoted section seems to be correct...

Please let me know exactly where the problem lies. Thanks.

Comment 2 Wes Hamilton 2001-02-22 19:52:27 UTC
I believe that as the actual scripts are located in /etc/rc.d/init.d, and the 
symlinks are located in /etc/rc.d/rc<x>.d, the existing wording is confusing, 
and could perhaps be fixed by changing to the following:

OLD:
"None of the scripts that actually start and stop the services are 
actually located in /etc/rc.d/init.d. Rather, all of the files 
in /etc/rc.d/rc<x>.d are symbolic links that point to actual scripts 
located in /etc/rc.d/init.d."

NEW:
"None of the scripts that actually start and stop the services are 
located in /etc/rc.d/rc<x>.d. Rather, all of the files
in /etc/rc.d/rc<x>.d are symbolic links that point to actual scripts 
located in /etc/rc.d/init.d."

Thanks for the clarification.

Yes, this text slipped through proofing. I've made the change.

Thanks again.
