RE: /etc/rc*.d/K05st.exmple not executed when the system is shut down



Thanks again. Yes, I see /etc/init.d/killall. My question is that if the daemon shutdown is all handled by killall, why do we install K* in /etc/rc*.d and what is /etc/rc*.d/K* for?

I don't have any manual that describes this, but it is clearly done in 
every Red Hat-provided service script .. and reading /etc/init.d/killall 
reinforces that.
