Description Harald Hoyer 2007-07-05 09:57:40 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.

        Update for Fedora init-scripts guidelines:
        * etc/qpidd: Provide an LSB header.
        Allow options to be specified via QPIDD_OPTIONS=...
          in /etc/sysconfig/qpidd.
        Diagnose and 'exit 3' for the unsupported "reload".
        Don't mention unused $pidfile.
        Remove useless curly braces: ${lockfile} -> $lockfile.
        Write usage and error diagnostics to stderr, not stdout.
        Change spelling: condrestart -> try-restart.
