Description Thomas Schweikle 2006-03-16 15:09:46 UTC
"/usr/local/etc/rc.d/nntpcached.sh" references "/etc/rc.subr". This is not installed by FreeBSD 4.11 checked out today. Trying to start nntpcache using "/usr/local/etc/rc.d/nntpcached.sh start" leads to error ".: Can't open /etc/rc.subr: No such file or directory".

nntpcached will not be started.


I copied rc.subr from a FreeBSD 5.5-PRERELEASE system. This seems to work.
How-To-Repeat: rebuild your system:
cd /usr/src
mergemaster -p
make buildworld
make buildkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC
make installkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC
make installworld
mergemaster -a

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/nntpcached.sh start

Assign to maintainer. There is a problem with rc script, you have to use 

. %%RC_SUBR%% 

instead of 

. /etc/rc.subr
