In slack 13; what package installs /etc/rc.d/rc.4 script?


I'm trying to figure out how to configure my customized Slim DM
to overwrite the installed /etc/rc.d/rc.4 script with the one I put in
my slim build from source

However, it just installs it as rc.4.new and not rc.4
why?

would it be easier to instead configure the rc.4 that initially gets installed?

if so, what slack pkg has the /etc/rc.d/* folder??

I'm doing this with Absolute 13.0.8 install cd as its installed size is too big for my lappy hdd and it comes with both gdm and xdm
and I want slim.

So, I removed many many pkgs from install iso, got it down to 370MB and only problem is after install
my rc.4 is in /etc/rc.d but its named rc.4.new and there is also the original rc.4
thats my only issue

How do i do this?

To elaborate more, heres the custom rc.4 I need to have installed when i install from my iso

Code:
#! /bin/sh
#
# rc.4		This file is executed by init(8) when the system is being
#		initialized for run level 4 (XDM)
#
# Version:	@(#)/etc/rc.d/rc.4	2.00	02/17/93
#
# Author:	Fred N. van Kempen, <waltje@uwalt.nl.mugnet.org>
# At least 47% rewritten by:  Patrick J. Volkerding <volkerdi@slackware.com>
#

# Tell the viewers what's going to happen...
echo "Starting up X11 session manager..."

# --- 8< --------------------------------------------------------------------
# Try to use SLiM login manager.  This comes first because if
# SLiM is on the machine then the user probably installed it and wants
# to use it by default:
if [ -x /usr/bin/slim ]; then
  exec /usr/bin/slim
fi

# --- 8< --------------------------------------------------------------------

# Try to use GNOME's gdm session manager.  This comes first because if
# gdm is on the machine then the user probably installed it and wants
# to use it by default:
if [ -x /usr/bin/gdm ]; then
  exec /usr/bin/gdm -nodaemon
fi

# Someone thought that gdm looked prettier in /usr/sbin,
# so look there, too:
if [ -x /usr/sbin/gdm ]; then
  exec /usr/sbin/gdm -nodaemon
fi

# Not there?  OK, try to use KDE's kdm session manager:
if [ -x /opt/kde/bin/kdm ]; then
  exec /opt/kde/bin/kdm -nodaemon
elif [ -x /usr/bin/kdm ]; then
  exec /usr/bin/kdm -nodaemon
fi

# If all you have is XDM, I guess it will have to do:
if [ -x /usr/bin/xdm ]; then
  exec /usr/bin/xdm -nodaemon
elif [ -x /usr/X11R6/bin/xdm ]; then
  exec /usr/X11R6/bin/xdm -nodaemon
fi

# error
echo
echo "Hey, you don't have KDM, GDM, or XDM.  Can't use runlevel 4 without"
echo "one of those installed."
sleep 30

# All done.
I need the highlighted section in the rc.4 script

http://www.slackwiki.org/Doinst.sh

you can see lot of examples how to include customized doinst.sh in slackware sources

at, for example, has this line near the end of the slackbuild, just before makepkg
Code:
zcat $CWD/doinst.sh > $PKG/install/doinst.sh
(maybe should be "zcat $CWD/doinst.sh.gz", someone gotta tell Pat I was only looking for an example, LOL)

you can find the build files here.

Code:
mv /etc/rc.d/rc.4.new /etc/rc.d/rc.4
that would certainly work. Or you could just edit the existing rc.4 with the changes.

first time I see a salix buildscript, but reading it I suppose after
Code:
for i in ${dotnew[@]}; do
echo "dotnew $i" >> $startdir/pkg/install/doinst.sh
done
fi
add
Code:
echo "mv /etc/rc.d/rc.4.new /etc/rc.d/rc.4" >> $startdir/pkg/install/doinst.sh
just before the closing bracket, on a separate line

you can try putting it just before the end bracket on the last line of your buildscript.
