Description Lubomir Kundrak 2007-09-05 11:19:55 EDT
Description of problem: These lines bother me: restart) configtest || exit $? stop start ;; Is it really wise to check configuration and die silently if the check fails? Most services don't do this. Maybe it would be enough if configtest was a bit more verbose, like: 'Checking configuration [FAILED]', or, better, wasn't present at all. There's still a "testconfig" target in case someone wishes to test the config. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): dhcp-3.0.6-3.fc8 Additional info: I don't know anything about whether this is or isn't LSB compilant.

Good catch. I'll work on that later. Thanks for the report. I have been slowly working on making it LSB compliant, but that's sort of a rainy day project honestly. /me waves the not-the-original-author flag :)

Fixed in rawhide (dhcp-3.0.6-6.fc8). I've changed the dhcpd and dhcrelay scripts to conform with the Fedora initscript guidelines in addition to removing the unnecessary configtest call you reported. Thanks.

While running into bug 320761, I've stumbled into this, too. "restart" should call "start" even if "stop" failed. That is, it should attempt a "start" *always*, even if dhcpd is stopped in unknown ways. The way you've changed it, "restart" is like "condrestart" except for the lockfile-check.
