Absolutely...go ahead and ask all you want
. Well , I wasnt sure myself so I looked up some stuff online and as you already mentioned the ~~
stands for id
Here's what I found out:
the /etc/inittab file has the following format:
`identifier' is a unique identifier, from 1 to 4 characters. Make sure you don't use duplicate identifiers in your file. The identifier has no bearing on how init works; the names don't have to mean anything.
So from what I understand from this, it wouldnt matter if you changed the ~~
as long as that was the only line in /etc/inittab with XX
. Makes sense??
I havent yet tried it out. Maybe you'd want to back up your /etc/inittab file, change the ~~
and then log in to SUM and see if everything still works okay.
Hope this helps a bit. If I try it out at home tonight after work I'll post back. Do post back if you try it out earlier.
