[Tutorial] Installing MinimServer on FreeNAS or FreeBSD

RE: [Tutorial] Installing MinimServer on FreeNAS or FreeBSD
In this section of code:

Code:
pid="$(cat "${MINIMPIDFILE}" 2>/dev/null)"
if [ -n "$pid" ]; then
    cmdline="$(cat /proc/$pid/cmdline | tr '\0' ' ' 2>/dev/null)"
else
    cmdline=
fi
if [ -z "$cmdline" ]; then
    if [ -s "${OUTFILE}" ]; then
        cat "${OUTFILE}" 1>&2
    else
        echo "Failed to start Minim${WS}" 1>&2
    fi
    exit 1
fi

the startd script is looking for the minimserver.pid file to be non-null and checking whether /proc/$pid/cmdline is also non-null. If the minimserver.pid file is non-null and /proc/$pid/cmdline is null, the "Failed to start" message will be produced.

Does /proc/$pid/cmdline work on BSD? If it doesn't, this would explain the error message.

The other possibility is that the minimserver.pid file is non-null and /proc/$pid/cmdline is null because of some startup sequencing/timing issue. If this is the case, adding a short delay into this check might solve the problem.

I can't check this myself because it is working for me on Linux.
