Re: errors in rc.log

Hi:

You probably have a bogus file in the '/etc/rc.config.d' directory. You can keep backup copies of files here _ONLY_ if you follow the rules documented in '/etc/rc.config'.

One way to expose the problem is to do:

# sh -vx /etc/rc.config 2>&1|more

The actual filename will appear as 'fname=' in the traced output with clear syntax errors like you have seen.

Regards!
