Description kenneth_porter 2000-10-01 00:36:31 EDT
If rc.local is for local configuration, why is there any code in the default implementation? The code to create /etc/issue should be moved to a separate initscript to simplify upgrades when rc.local has been customized. The default rc.local should be empty of anything but comments.
Comment 1 Alan Cox 2000-10-01 18:12:24 EDT
Its for local use and customisation. It contains some initial customisables. Its
common to customise the rc.local to append things like 'Property of Foo Bar
Corp, phone ... if offered for Sale" and the like as an example
