Description inoue 1999-05-31 23:23:12 EDT
I wonder why init-scripts touch /var/lock/subsys/*
individually; isn't it better function daemon() do this?

I think it is also smart to introduce some function to
remove /var/run/*.pid and /var/lock/* together
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-06-23 17:56:59 EDT
The one problem with this is that it runs the risk of breaking
previous initscripts; while we maintain our own, we don't
maintain ones for third party software (like ssh, for example...)
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-07-01 17:30:59 EDT
we'll look at this for a later release...
