pkg/38055: gated startup rc-file broken - filesystem not mounted at this time

System: NetBSD s011 4.0 NetBSD 4.0 (NSW-S011) #17: Mon Feb 18 12:51:48 CET 2008
In the example startup file (/usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/gated) gated
is started after network and mountcritlocal
but before NETWORKING.
A this time /usr and /usr/pkg are not mounted - and gated is installed
During the boot process, the gated startup is ignored without any error
indication on the console, due to
the missing binary in /usr/...
This leads to a system startup without gated running and the
administrator searching for the problem ...
A second problem is, that gated expects syslogd to be up and running.
But syslogd startup expects, that that network setup has completed - at
least the netbsd rc-files force this.
install gated from pkgsrc-2007Q4 and try to start it during boot
process using e.g. the example startup file.
Not realy known to me.
For me I've fixed the problem by starting gated after syslogd before
SERVERS - but this may break other assumtions in
Perhaps it would be a good idea to install such essential programs on a
path like /etc/pkg/sbin to have them on the
root filesystem and start newsyslog and syslogd in front of the routing
daemons. Syslogd is started prior named in the current
setup, so syslogd seems to be resistent agains hostname lookup failure
and should also be resistend agains problems sending
messages to remote systems.
