Pretty > much any other way is wrong. this is not correct. if i put an "exit 0" in front of the init.d script, i can't start the daemon manually, which is what i might want to do from time to time. so "to hack the init.d script not to run" certainly ain't the correct way. for now, debian is pretty much broken in this regard. -- Thomas 'Mike' Michlmayr | ignorami: n: The BOFH art of folding problem <firstname.lastname@example.org> | lusers into representational shapes.
