Panther change in StartupItems
Authored by: pjw on Nov 06, '03 03:31:29PM

I found confirmation of this change. Perhaps this should be listed in a different hint. Apple is phasing out the StartupItems mechanism for loading daemons and services and moving to a "load-on-demand" approach that uses a tool called register_mach_bootstrap_servers. Here's the document that gives the details:

System startup: The Boot Process (Bootstrap Daemons section)

I have no idea how this impacts where the Firewall startup should go.
