Description of problem:
ntsysv used to work. Now that I'm running 2.6.1-1.43 kernel from
rawhide, when I run ntsysv, it shows me all non-xinetd services off.
Running with strace I see that it's looking into /etc/rc.d/rc0.d/
chkconfig works as it's expected.
system-config-services generates python errors and refuses to run so I
cannot check that one.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot with 2.6 kernel from rawhide
2. Run ntsysv
Actual Results: All non-xinetd services are off
Expected Results: Some services should be on
What's the output of the 'runlevel' command?
[root@mces root]# runlevel
Sorry Bill, seems to be a problem from my side. I've got no
/var/run/utmp nor /var/run/wtmp. Don't know why. Just that 'strace
runlevel' shows that it looks for them.
Do you have any idea how they can disappear? I'm sure ntsysv was working.
Not off the top of my head. I'd do the obvious checks for
Well, actually a second check shows that I've got a healthy
/var/log/wtmp, so last(1) works. What runlevel is looking for and I
don't have is /var/run/utmpx and /var/run/utmp.
So, you know how runlevel is supposed to work.
Apparently this has been a minor problem in my side. Now I see there
is a /var/run/utml and runlevel works fine. Closing.
