1 After installing gnome, I have the file:
2 /tmp/medusa-init
3 What's its purpose? May I delete it?
5 I compiled the pcmcia drivers into the kernel. But I also had to change
6 /etc/init.d/pcmcia not to check for the modules any longer. Should I
7 report this as a bug?
9 In connection with the init.d scripts. E.g. gpm has the tendency to die
10 without removing its pidfile. If the /etc/init.d/gpm tries to start, it
11 detects the lockfile and gives up. After that the only way to bring gpm
12 up is to delete the lockfile (by hand) and also! remove
13 /mnt/.init.d/started, because gpm stop won't remove itself from /mnt...
14 because it failed killing the gpm-daemon but gmp start fails because
15 there is a /mnt/... file.
17 If you know where to search for, it's not a big deal, but I guess the
18 scripts should remove wrong pidfiles and also remove itself from started
19 even if the daemon does not exist.
21 Last question: is there a way to tell X11 to report using syslogd?
22 If yes, shouldn't this be the default?
