Well, It seems that trying to use SystemV init is a losing proposition
It is, and I've learned SystemV init over the years, I'll miss it.
Thanks for that link, yes, it's now "upstart" (couldn't recall that when I was posting).
But linux development is progressing much faster than the other OSs, and I fully expect I'll get used to future changes as I have been very pleased with the replacement of devfs
. Waaaaay better, whilst a personal headache and unwelcome relearning experience.
This I know will work. I had it that way when I started this little project.
So, two steps forward and one back. It's still progress.
I raise my hat to the developers who have managed this transition without many of us noticing anything at all: "Legacy scripts" are still acknowledged, but I accept that this may not last. For example check your /var/log/messages
- mine has references to "This is deprecated: see http://xxx", but to give the developers credit, it is still all working, but we are being given good warnings that this may not be the case in the future, unless we all keep up.
