Many startup scripts used (some still do) cut. However,
as it is placed in /usr/bin, it can only be used for scripts
that are started after netfs (in case /usr is on a NFS
Moving it to /bin would solve this problem.
I don't see any that start before netfs, but I could be looking at the wrong
Hm, I'm not quite sure if there are any left in the current beta - I did
make quite a few bug reports during last beta and for 7.0. Will
have to check this again. Thought I found at least two, but I could
However, many startup scripts changed to using awk instead
because cut isn't always available for init scripts. Comparing
only the file sizes (11644 for cut vs. 157884 for awk in 7.0) I'd suppose
that cut would be the proper choice in many cases (actually many
used it and changed to awk - my fault, I did then file a bug report
eg. against ipchains because it was using cut - should have filed
it against cut beacuse it isn't in /bin, I suppose)
It's moved to /bin in 2.0.11.
