Description Harald Hoyer 2007-07-05 09:57:35 EDT
Please have a look at the wikipage 
and change your initscripts to comply with the LSB standard.
Especially check the exit status and add a LSB Header.
E.g. starting a service should return with 0, if the service is already running and stopping a stopped service should also return with 0.

Also check, if your service has to be _on_ per default, and turn it off in the old chkconfig line, if not.

Thank you.

I don't know if that has been considered yet, but as the initscript registers a
binary handler for .exe files: How do we handle the situation where wine is
installed too. The initscript from wine also registers a binary handler for .exe
files. Which one shall the kernel use?
Comment 2 Christian Nolte 2007-11-19 14:24:28 EST
Furthermore the initscript does not work. The architecture test is wrong and the
package qemu-0.9.0-5.fc8 does not contain directories like /usr/qemu-*. I attach
a patch to correct this issue.

doesn't happen again.

According to the new SYSV initscripts packaging guidelines LSB headers are
optional -> closing.
