Moin Nico!

thanks for the help! the links are there:

bil init.d/rc3.d# ls -l S08sshd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Sep 24 12:26 S08sshd -> ../sshd
bil init.d/rc3.d# ls -l ../rc5.d/S08sshd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Sep 24 12:26 ../rc5.d/S08sshd ->
bil init.d/rc3.d#

and sshd starts if i run rcsshd start.

however, there is a line in boot.msg about there not being a sshd user for
priv. sep.:

Privilege separation user sshd does not exist
<notice>'/etc/init.d/rc5.d/S08sshd start' exits with status 0

is the current sshd rpm not making this user correctly? there is no sshd user
in /etc/passwd.
