Details on sysrc

Michael W. Lucas has a short article up about sysrc, a FreeBSD tool for handling rc.conf across multiple machines.  This could easily be a cross-BSD tool – hint, hint.

Update: as Sascha Wildner pointed out, rcrun covers that in DragonFly.  Mostly I’d like to see the same interface, then, I guess?

  1. Sascha Wildner says:

    In DragonFly, this functionality should be covered by rcrun(8), i.e. rcstart, rcstop, rcenable and friends.


  2. Petr says:

    We should have a new RC system. Perhaps, port SMF from OpenIndiana?

    How difficult could this be?
