Strongly seconded. As they say, "when you are looking for a Linux OS,=20
you know where to find it."
-- At work, I have been carrying around a script from Ubuntu 9 to 10 to=20
debian 7 clients, to be run from rc.local, which checks whether NIS is=20
actually available and automount can mount nfs shares, and restarts a=20
handful of services if not. This is because obtaining an ip address=20
during boot is considered optional (the dhcp client will background=20
after a few seconds), and at least some network daemons consistently=20
fail to deal with the fallout. kdm will then put up a requester anyway,=20
and "logins will not work".
I would rather not see that s...ub-obtimal approach on NetBSD.
