change shutdown seq in red hat linux kernel 2.6

In reply to: some help

Why the init level 3 ,4 ,5 not present a S script for gcota and

a K script for gcota ???
Only init level 0 ,1,2,6 present K script
init level 3 ,4, 5 present S script ??

Why do it not present both script in the same level ????
It is red hat linux kernel 2.6

# find /etc/rc.d -name "*gcota*" -print
# head -20 /etc/initd./gcota
head: cannot open `/etc/initd./gcota' for reading: No such file or directory
# head -20 /etc/init.d/gcota
#! /bin/bash
# chkconfig: 345 96 4

You can edit those all things to your need (hit new boot record of 2 seconds etc.), but be careful you can end up with no boot at all. All that layout may look difficult and hard to understand, but it is most simple when you need to make big changes to it. Also it allows more security and faster boot times.

Back to topic so you just find correct script and add sth. like this to it:
That simple.

In reply to: eh

I just want to know why the K script and S script are both present in the user level ....if either one is missing , that make
the shutdwon or startup application missing ...
that is what I meet , without k script , the application cannot shutdown auto, I need to shutdown it manually by command before the machine reboot successfuly ....
Why both k script and s script not present in the same user level if I create the auto startup by chkconfig ..
Any thing wrong ?? Any advice ???

K - means shut-down script
S - means start-up script
shutdown from user runlvl to lower in other words is run K userlvl script. And etc.

eh... p.s. This is basics of Unix type OS. You can find this in any general book about Unix.
