Matt Dillon’s updated RCNG in a big way. You can now check the status of, or start, stop, etc. different system services using appropriate single commands like
rcrestart, and so on.
varsym -sa will list service status.
The old way had you looking for the appropriate file in
/etc/rc.d and issing commands for it, and having to poke throught
ps -ax or
/var/run/ to see what’s going.
To get this running, do
make upgrade_etc in
/usr/src/etc, or a regular build/installworld. Also, install
/usr/src/sbin/rcrun, and reboot.
