IIRC, I don't believe that OpenBSD uses the same model of runlevels
that linux uses. Please, someone who's more experienced, correct me
if I'm wrong, because I'm going out on a limb here as far as my
knowledge. I believe OpenBSD only has basically two runlevels,
multi-user and single user modes. As opposed to linux which has like
runs levels from 1 to 6. Like I said this is my best recollection.
Hope this helps.
