I'm happily running SuSE 8.0. whoohoo! suse rocks.
However, I have a little problem, and as my Madison LUG server seems to
be blowing chunks, I thought I'd hit you up for a little advice.
Here's the thing: With my cable modem service I need to establish a VPN
connection to the university. I can do this just fine. However, I want
to automate the process, so I wrote a tiny little script to run the two
/sbin/route commands and the pptp client command. My script consists of
/sbin/route add -host 188.8.131.52 gw 10.44.124.1 dev eth0
/sbin/route del default
/usr/bin/pptp doit-cable name soisaac_3
I put the script in /etc/init.d, and made a symbolic link to it from
/etc/init.d/rc5.d (naming the link S12pptp-connect). I reboot, and the
system seems not to have executed it. There's no entry of it in the
boot log. Would you have any inkling what's going on? The script
works--if I type "sh /etc/init.d/pptp-connect" in the terminal (as
root). ??? Is there something wrong with the name of my link, that it
doesn't get run?
