Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 143829
/etc/init.d/postgresql service reports FAILED on successful startup
Last modified: 2013-07-02 23:03:06 EDT
Description of problem:
The postgresql service script uses pidof to determine if postgresql
has started properly. However it is looking for /usr/bin/postmaster
which is a symlink to /usr/bin/postgresql and so it doesn't find the
processes and reports fairly
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run /etc/init.d/postgresql restart
This is a pidof bug --- that particular release of SysVinit is broken.

I tried to say that on the RHEL bug this was marked as a duplicate of
but was told I'm not allowed :-)
Should I file another bug about that or should it be released
automatically (and when :-))?
I don't know what notting's plans are for fixing the problem in devel
tip. In the meantime I'd suggest forcibly downgrading to the latest
released FC3 version, SysVinit-2.85-34. Or you could just ignore the
bleating from the init script for now ;-)
Yeah, need to build a new devel version at some point.
Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
