  • This is System V. Also, you might find stokely.com [stokely.com] helpful as, if you are rebooting for dhcp you are doing it wrong.

    • My point is that the scripts in Solaris's /etc/init.d are not well organized compared to Red Hat, Debian, LFS, etc., particularly in the matter of setting the hostname. It would help if some of the people who wrote those scripts knew you could use DHCP to request a hostname.

      if you are rebooting for dhcp you are doing it wrong.

      Yeah, I know. :) Someone ought to tell the guy from Sun who wrote that manpage.

      • Well, linux isn't System V [ it's -ish but, at least the last time I deigned to soil myself by touching Linux, it's a mismash of variants ] and once you get used to the way Solaris does things, it will make some sort of sense. RH and friends seem disorganised to me :)

        and manpages? Why, when I was young, we didn't have manpages! We had to go into the basement of the computing center to find the troll-like guy who would speak only in binary ;)
