I don't think it's in the Slack scripts. Here's about where it *would* be.

Code:
# Kill all processes.
# INIT is supposed to handle this entirely now, but this didn't always
# work correctly without this second pass at killing off the processes.
# Since INIT already notified the user that processes were being killed,
# we'll avoid echoing this info this time around.
if [ "$1" != "fast" ]; then # shutdown did not already kill all processes
  killall5 -15 
  sleep 5
  killall5 -9
fi

Found it. It's embedded in init. Kinda hard to edit that.

Code:
 
|--bash 2.05b /sbin $ strings init | grep -i term
Sending processes the TERM signal

Well, download the source for init and edit the file and compile it. The source isn't binary yet.

No, seriously - you should be able to add anything you want to the script, though. (Well, not *anything*, obviously.) Like if Patrick had echoed what was going on it would have displayed, it just would have been redundant.

Now I'm confused all over again. I don't have the init source code. Everybody's got init scripts on their systems. Those are text files. That's what my first code snippet was from. And everybody's got init and, if they work, they're binary. I just searched the binary for the ascii that would be echoed. That was the second code snippet pasted from rxvt. But everybody's got *different* init scripts and maybe different versions of the init binary. Where'd you find your termite stuff?

EDIT: Who cares? Might as well stick with changing what it says cause I cant find the source code and I've made you people really confused. Thanks for all the help.

Ok first I found it in /sbin/shutdown and second it was full of "@"s "/"s and numbers.
