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

Working /etc/init.d/messagebus script
Very simple fix.
Applied to CVS, needs to be built in RPM form. Thanks.
