Hi Max,

Yesterday i cvsuped (RELENG_5) and started a "make world". I also let run
"mergemaster -i", it updated some files and installed the new file
"rc.bsdextended". To rule out a someway mangled source tree i made a
clean checkout of "/usr/src" and build the world again, but
"/etc/rc.d/network" was not installed.

I looked in cvs again and found, that this script is not linked to the build
In Fri Aug 29 13:25:08 2003 there was also some cleaning up in this file
(rev 1.25), the scripts "network1" "network2" "network3" were removed.
I dont know if this actual "/etc/rc.d/network" script is an artifact of this
clean sweep, but the latest changes to this file were made after August
so i dont think so.

As for the "/etc/defaults/rc.conf" file, i have Revision which is
latest version tagged as RELENG_5. Also using Revision 1.243 the script
with theses warnings, and i dont have a idea where to set these variables.

Is actually someone using the script "/etc/rc.d/network"?
