    are you invoking it with the python interpreter?

    e.g.

    Code:
    /usr/bin/python /path/to/script.py
    linux user # 503963

    Ok so I made a file called S99pytest in /etc/rc2.d with this line:

    #!/usr/bin/python /etc/rc2.d/S99pytest

    In the svc error log it is complaining about my use of 'import' to It must still be running it as a shell script.
