Hi Robby, Marco.
Sorry, I don't speak English.
In the pdnsd-1.2.7/src/rc/README file from pdnsd-1.2.7 source.
You can read 
A Slackware start-up script rc.pdnsd was contributed by Nikola Kotur 
<kotnik at ns-linux.org>.
His comments were:

Slackware uses traditional BSD style init script layout instead of SystemV
style startup scripts.  So I adjusted the start-up script for pdnsd, and
now it can be used with Slackware 9.1 distribution, and probably with all the

Additional info:
1) put these lines in the /etc/rc.d/rc.M:
        if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.pdnsd ]; then
                . /etc/rc.d/rc.pdnsd start

2) put these lines in the /etc/rc.d/rc.6 and /etc/rc.d/rc.K:
        if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.pdnsd ]; then
                . /etc/rc.d/rc.pdnsd stop
After the package installation, during the shutdown process the following 
message appears:
"INIT: No more processes left in this runlevel.."
And the system is locked.

After submitting the package is that I realized this problem, just get hung up 
when my machine.
But I think Mr. Robby Workman did fix the problem for me. :)
Because when the package downloaded from the instruction in README 
slackbuild.org were: 
Add this to /etc/rc.d/rc.local:
        if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.pdnsd ]; then
                /etc/rc.d/rc.pdnsd start

Add this to /etc/rc.d/rc.local_shutdown
        if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.pdnsd ]; then
                /etc/rc.d/rc.pdnsd stop
And it works.
Package now works correctly. How should I proceed to submit the package again?
