How can I stop a script running as "deamon" from rc.d?
I am running amd64 rel 5.1 (binary, GENERIC kernel) on my laptop.
My wireless network access point removes my connection if there are
no requests for a certain amount of time.
To show that I'm still alive, I've cooked up a tiny script which sends
a single ping to the nameserver once a minute. The address is taken
I prefer to start the script (called /usr/local/sbin/keepalive) from
rc.conf just like wpa_supplicant and dhclient.
The script starts and functions nicely with command_args='&' in
/etc/rc.d/keepalive. However, if I stop it, with the command:
I get the question
keepalive not running?
probably because ps says, "/bin/sh /usr/local/sbin/keepalive" is the
command which runs the script.
How do I teach my rc.d/keepalive script to find the right program
