Description shuey 1999-01-04 20:54:45 UTC
Kerneld is started from /etc/rc.boot and from a script in
/etc/rc.d/init.d.  While rc.boot checks the kernel version
(since 2.1.x and higher kernels don't need kerneld) the
script does not.  This doesn't really cause any problems at
all, but I thought I'd mention it so it doesn't persist into
RH 6.0.  Removing the script (and, of course, the symlinks
pointing to it) eliminates this problem completely.
