Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 198886
install_initd does not work with LSB-conforming init scripts
Last modified: 2014-03-25 20:53:36 EDT
Description of problem:
The programs install_initd and remove_initd do not support init scripts that
do not contain chkconfig-specific markings. LSB specifies that these programs
should operate on ### BEGIN INIT INFO/### END INIT INFO blocks, but even if
these blocks are present, install_initdb and remove_initd complain that the
service does not support chkconfig. This breaks the fundamental purpose of
When adding chkconfig markings (chkconfig: and description:) before the LSB
info blocks, it works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.3-5.2
