restart a service during boot?

Hi *,

I’m wondering if it is possible for the sysvinit system to
restart a service during boot.


• udev logs, by default, to klog, which is very wrong
• I have a patch for it to try syslog first
• udev is normally started… rather early
• early, syslog isn’t available yet
• so udev will still log to klog even with the patch

It turns out that restarting udev once inetutils-syslogd is up
fixes the problem, but I can’t figure out how this can be done
within the sysvinit/sysv-rc/insserv framework.
