LSB service shutdown
I would like to get the service vmware to shutdown first on my linux box. I am using insserv to change run levels and such. However, I can't seem to get the kill script for vmware to be the first one. Does the Required-Stop: have to be empty, or should I have a value in there? I've tried both ways. Here is what the init info looks like right now:
# Provides: VMware
# Required-Start: $network $syslog
# Required-Stop:
# Default-Start: 2 3 5
# Default-Stop: 0 6
# Short-Description: Manages the services needed to run VMware software
# Description: Manages the services needed to run VMware software

I figured it out. Apparently suse ignores this param:

The Required-Stop keyword indicates what services must still be running during the shutdown of the service (however, this is currently ignored in SUSE; the reverse order of the Required-Start is used instead).
