Why is procps procps.sh in init.d?
I've been looking at bug #343620 where /etc/init.d/procps.sh should
not exit out. I can see why this could cause problems.
However, while I can see that bug #52228 asks for procps to be sourced,
I can see no good reason for doing so.
Isn't the whole point of the /etc/init.d/<whatever>.sh files to setup
environment variables for subsequent init scripts.
The procps init script sets kernel variables, when you remove all the
stuff what it basically does is
Which sets the kernel variables found at /etc/sysctl.conf
Is there any good reason keeping it like that, it appears to be it
would be best to make it /etc/init.d/procps
