Fix to /etc/rc.d/init.d/halt.d to store random seed where rc.init expects it (498 bytes, text/plain)

Description Lubomir Bulej 2004-10-02 11:19:22 EDT
Description of problem:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/halt saves random seed to /var/lib/random_seed
instead of /var/lib/random-seed, from which the rc.sysinit reads it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:
It may very well be the other way around, e.g. that rc.sysinit should
read the random seed from random_seed instead of random-seed. I think
that historically it has been random-seed.

The attached patch fixes the "halt" script to use random-seed.
