Description Michal Marciniszyn 2007-04-27 12:56:37 UTC
Description of problem:
In the innd script, there are several constructions that make it possible to end
script with error code 0 while the service is not running. For example:
[ "${NETWORKING}" = "no" ] && exit 0
[ -d /etc/news ] || exit 0
[ -f /etc/news/inn.conf ] || exit 0
. /usr/lib/news/lib/innshellvars || exit 0
[ -d "$SPOOLBASE" ] || exit 0
There is also minor error with incorrect error code of unimplemented script feature.
