Hi Doug :)
I thought I had mailed you already about this, but apparently the
message was lost somewhere. With the recent email problems I've had,
it may not be so strange. Anyway, here's a copy of the message:

This doesn't seem to work too well though. Revision 1.12 of cleartmp
correctly creates .ICE-unix and the other X11 socket dirs in /tmp in my
mfs /tmp filesystem. Newer revisions fail to do this, for two reasons:
The cleartmp_prestart() function runs only when the script runs with
$1 set to 'start', but the boot process calls the script with
Even when I change cleartmp to recognise faststart, onestart, start
and forcestart, the cleartmp_prestart() function runs before
cleartmp_start(), creates the directories, only to have them deleted
immediately by cleartmp_start() when run_rc_command is called.
I'm not sure if there's a good way to modify cleartmp to do both things
correctly, at least without something equally hackish like:
run_rc_command "$@" || exit $?
case $1 in
or if it's better to make two cleartmp scripts :-/
