8. Appendix B. - complete rc.0 -> rc.6 file

#! /bin/sh
# rc.6          This file is executed by init when it goes into runlevel
#               0 (halt) or runlevel 6 (reboot). It kills all processes,
#               unmounts file systems and then either halts or reboots.
# Version:      @(#)/etc/rc.d/rc.6      1.50    1994-01-15
# Author:       Miquel van Smoorenburg <>
# Modified by:  Patrick J. Volkerding, <>
