I would like to make a sh script and I have the next
question: I don`t want the next command to be executed
until the kernel sends a syslogd message. For example,
I want make the script waiting for the message from
ifconfig after I change the MAC : ifconfig my_nc ether
mac. This command will send a message to syslogd (and
this => to console).
