Working /etc/init.d/messagebus script (1.64 KB, text/plain)

Description Michael Kearey 2003-07-28 04:00:50 UTC

Description of problem:
I have found a tiny little problem in an init script for the new 'messagebus'

Even though the daemon called dbus-daemon-1 which is started by the init script
/etc/init.d/messagebus is running, the command 'service messagebus status'
returns 'messagebus dead but pid file exists'.

This is due to a small error in the /etc/init.d/messagebus init script. 
	status messagebus

There is no such process as 'messagebus' the process is dbus-daemon-1.
I added line: 


And changed to :

	status $processname
It now reports that the process is running, as it should.

I will add an attatchment of the complete script..

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.su to root
2.Start messagebus service 'service messagebus start'
3.Run command 'service messagebus status'

Actual Results:  'messagebus dead but pid file exists'.

Expected Results:  dbus-daemon-1 (pid XXXX) is running

Applied to CVS, needs to be built in RPM form. Thanks.
