Description Ben Werthmann 2016-01-21 18:15:50 EST
Description of problem:
The init script provided in the PPA for nfs-ganesha for Ubuntu Trusty will not start the daemon.  

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

How reproducible:

Actual results:
$ service nfs-ganesha start
/etc/init.d/nfs-ganesha: line 22: /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions: No such file or directory
Starting ganesha.nfsd: /etc/init.d/nfs-ganesha: line 46: failure: command not found

Expected results:
Daemon should start

Additional info:
Attempted this patch, but run into issues because /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions and /lib/lsb/init-functions are not compatible.

I suspect the best way forward is to have a Debian/Ubunutu specific, LSB compliant init script going forward. I'm open to other ideas as well.

a) I also cannot start ganesha on any Debian based OS, including the old LTS version, Ubuntu 14 LTS.

b) the above diff does not fix "status" & "stop" etc.

c) The same bug is also in debian repo ( http://download.gluster.org/pub/gluster/glusterfs/LATEST/Debian/jessie/ )

Our workaround is to use runit to manage nfs-ganesha.
