Description Olivier Crête 1999-10-23 17:57:05 UTC
If the kernel is compiled w/o sysrq support, rc.sysinit
issues an error message like "/proc/sys/kernel/sysrq: No
such file or directory" I think this simple patch could do
it

  # Turn off sysrq
- if [ "$MAGIC_SYSRQ" = "no" ];
+ if [ "$MAGIC_SYSRQ" = "no" -a -e /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq
];   then
          echo "0" > /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq
  fi

Already fixed in the latest initscripts in Raw Hide.
