Why this package

This package runs all rc.conf-enabled rc.d scripts at boot time as one “service” in your operating system’s normal boot process.

Without this package

To configure pkgsrc-installed services to be started and stopped, follow the instructions specific to your operating system’s boot sequence.

With this package

Configure pkgsrc-installed services in /etc/rc.conf just as you would on NetBSD.

Get this package


# pkgin -y install rc.d-boot


$ cd /usr/pkgsrc/sysutils/rc.d-boot
$ make install

(Developed in pkgsrc, and sometimes offline with git.)

Status of this package

This package has been adapted to integrate into several types of boot sequences. If you find one where it doesn’t, that’s a bug: please let me know.

Improve this package

If you see a simpler way to do it, I’d love to know.
