    Why doesn't unbound rc.d script require syslogd?

    FreeBSD 14.0. Neither /usr/local/etc/rc.d/unbound, nor /etc/rc.d/local_unbound list syslogd among their requirements. So, if unbound service (either one) is started by setting respective X_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf, then it just so happens that unbound is started before syslogd. Which means...

    Solved Running a rc.d script as another user

    Hello, I am trying to set up a daemon for onedrive. It needs to be run as a specific user, because onedrive has to read the authentication token from the user home directory, and then synchronize into that directory. However, ${onedrived_user="borysj"} does not do the trick. I see that the...

    How to override start_precmd of existing rc.d script

    How should I override the start_precmd of an existing rc.d script? If the rc.d script contains load_rc_config ${name} towards the end of the script (e.g. right before run_rc_command "$1"), it would be a simple matter of creating a file /etc/rc.conf.d/myexample to override the start_precmd of the...

    Hello all FreeBSD users, With the intent of saving me time when I check in my FreeBSD server over SSH, I added a one-liner to my .profile that tells me which of the machine's configured services are alive and which ones are dead. It's working well and I thought I'd share. #!/bin/sh printf...

    Solved Rc.d daemon as user (emacs)

    Emacs can be run as a daemon using a flag: emacs --daemon. Then, all subsequent calls of emacsclient should connect to the server, saving startup time. FreeBSD's Emacs package doesn't seem to include any rc.d scripts so it's up to the user to procure one and that's what I'm trying to do. I...

    I think I asked this question sometime ago, but I can't find the answer when searching for it. Anyway...
