Description John (EBo) David 2005-06-25 08:42:49 UTC
After following the 2005.0 x86 Handbook on a necessary reinstall, several programs which require sshd to be running were not functioning properly.  After spending some time tracking things down I remembered that I had to either start sshd manually or add it to the default run script via:

  rc-update add sshd default

It would have saved me some headaces if there was a note in the install handbook noting that you need to run the above command if you want sshd to start on boot.

Both the latest handbook[1] and the 2005.0 handbook[2] already have specific
instructions on how to handle Init scripts. Please read the whole handbook,
since that helps solve such issues.
