Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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