Description of problem:
chkconfig does not create correct entries for our init scripts in /etc/rc*.d.
The entries get created as S-1* or S50* irrespective of the priority number requested.
The entries were getting created correctly on chkconfig version ckconfig-18.104.22.168-1.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Save the following script as say testinit in /etc/init.d
# ashish this is a test script.
# chkconfig: 3 66 75
# description: ashish
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides: ashish
# Default-Start: 3
### END INIT INFO
2. run "chkconfig --add testinit"
3. check the link created in /etc/rc3.d.
-- It will be /etc/rc3.d/S50testinit instead of S66.
4. do the same using chkconfig-22.214.171.124-1, and the link gets created correctly
Actual Results: link named S50testinit is created in /etc/rc3.d
Expected Results: link named S66testinit should be created in /etc/rc3.d
Your script has LSB comments; chkconfig is using LSB ordering semantics. Since
your script has no dependencies, it is being started at 50; if it had
dependencies, the priority would be adjusted accordingly.
