Description rcblach 1999-02-17 18:27:14 UTC
rc.local does not seem to be executed in redhat 5.1

Comment 1 rcblach 1999-02-19 15:12:59 UTC
After further research heres what I found.

The run time editor can remove the LINK for S99local to rc.local.
I evidently did this.
Once this is done, the available list does not show a local which
can be reinserted.  I recomend that the local be put in the available
so that the link can put back in.

Comment 2 David Lawrence 1999-03-12 20:05:59 UTC
I was able to replicate this problem by using chkconfig to --del
local. Once this done there isnt a way to get it back with chkconfig
unless you manually create the link to rc.local. Proper behavior would
be to move it to K99local or something similar.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-03-16 00:10:59 UTC
fixed in chkconfig-1.0.2-1
(you can no longer remove services that don't support chkconfig)
