Re:can't load squid 1.1.19 on boot

Hi all,

Last friday I was in the same point than Terry J. Wood, my system
hangs when I start squid from rc.local.

Today, I query to my local U*ix guru, and he propose me this
modification into rc.local file:

# starting Squid proxy/cache
if [ -f /usr/local/squid/bin/squid ]
 echo "Starting Proxy"
 nohup /usr/local/squid/bin/squid &

with nohup command, the execution becomes inmune to hangup and
with the & specification the process keeps running in background (non-
tty). It seems to run ok and no troubles at this time.

BTW, the system creates a new file named $HOME/nohup.out. (I explain
this because I'm very new in U*ix environment and all that tricks are
very strange for me :-)) )

I'll try to report any inconveniences in the next 48 hours.

Have a nice day!
