       tinydns-conf creates a service directory	D that runs  tinydns(8).   The
       name D must start with a	slash and must not contain any special charac-

       You can run the service under svscan(8) by creating a symbolic link  in
       the svscan(8) directory:

       ln -s D /service

       The  service will start within five seconds, and	will be	restarted upon
       reboot.	You can	use svc(8) to control the service.

       D/log/main.   The  logs are owned by logacct.  The corresponding	multi-
       log(8) processes	run under the uid and gid of logacct.	The  name  lo-
       gacct must not contain any special characters.
