Actually we do have 'named' runlevels. We only really use the runlevels from init to get the system to boot or shutdown. From there you just define your runlevel (may it be named 'home', 'work', whatever) in /etc/runlevels, and execute: # /sbin/rc work for instance. Sure, it may need some improvements, but why don't we *rather* work on that, than reinvent the wheel ? -- Martin Schlemmer Gentoo Linux Developer, Desktop/System Team Developer Cape Town, South Africa -- gentoo-dev@g.o mailing list
