Re: New experimental sysvinit

Anyone see any problems with this scheme?  Any better ideas?

This might be a silly question, but what would happen if DELAYLOGIN=yes
and /var/lib/initscripts/nologin does not exist?

I surmise that it's created somewhere in 0000runmefirst. After all, the usual state of a running system is that the file doesn't exist...

And that is probably not what I would expect. What about doing something like this...

NOLOGIN=boot	nologin exists during boot
NOLOGIN=always	nologin always exists
NOLOGIN=never	nologin never exists

...and leave handling of actual file/symlink to the script? This way you would be able to change the implementation and avoid breakage and confusion of manual messing with files.
