Description inoue 1999-06-01 03:23:12 UTC
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 21:56:59 UTC
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 21:30:59 UTC
we'll look at this for a later release...
