    Making an init script interactive


    Hi,

    Im a newbie. I have learned that the init scripts are arranged using this INIT INFO block. "insserv" creates the files /etc/init.d/.depend.boot , .depend.start and .depend.stop . How do i make a script interactive during the boot process? By editing .depend.start "INTERACTIVE=" line i could make one but this file is automatically generated and my changes will be lost.

    Where will i specify that my script will be running in interactive mode and the settings will reflect on .depend.start?


    ### BEGIN INIT INFO
    # Provides: service
    # Required-Start:
    # Should-Start: $all
    # Required-Stop:
    # Default-Start: 3 5
    # Default-Stop:
    # Description: Starts the service
    ### END INIT INFO

    Best Regards,
    Val
