Description Behdad Esfahbod 2004-01-18 21:03:29 UTC

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):

How reproducible:

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?

Comment 2 Behdad Esfahbod 2004-01-19 06:21:33 UTC
[root@mces root]# runlevel

Comment 3 Behdad Esfahbod 2004-01-19 06:23:19 UTC
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.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2004-01-19 06:28:12 UTC
Not off the top of my head. I'd do the obvious checks for

Comment 5 Behdad Esfahbod 2004-01-19 06:36:48 UTC
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.

Comment 6 Behdad Esfahbod 2004-01-28 14:39:36 UTC
Apparently this has been a minor problem in my side.  Now I see there
is a /var/run/utml and runlevel works fine.  Closing.
