I need to remove an entry of inittab which is used to (re)spawn a process:
mydemon:2345:respawn:/usr/sbin/mydemon >/dev/null 2>&1
So, I would comment out that entry and reload init running ``telinit
q''. IIRC, this would lead to the currently running daemon being killed.
I don't want to /try/ whether I'm right, as those are production systems.
Is there any possibility (given that ``telinit q'' kills the running
process) to 'keep the process alive' _and_ reload init?
