    I changed my rc.conf and added the line securelevel=NO, used 'shutdown
now' and then exited to reload the rc's. In the rc script I got "Kernel
securelevel 0 -> 0" but then as soon as the rc finished, and the Login
prompt popped up on the console, I got init: kernel securelevel changed from
0 -> 1. There's apparently no man page for securelevel and sysctl -w
kern.securelevel=0 is denied, for obvious reasons. Is this the expected
behavior? This is just the standard GENERIC kernel config, do I need
options=insecure in my kernel config to get securelevel 0 in multi-user?



Murphy was an optimist.
