Sorry, I can't find where fill future request. Please point me, if I should do that not in bugzilla.

I find very useful bash completion for services. Off course we can use /etc/init.d/[TAB] completion for that, but indeed it is not very comfortably.

Small googling, I found this script of completion in archlinux - http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/8481

This is require only one adjustment for Fedora on 3rd line replacement:

May you, please add it in bash-completion package?
Comment 1 john5342 2008-12-14 23:32:07 EST
Checked this and it appears this functionality is already present. With bash-completion installed at the bash propt:

service ipt[TAB]

completes to:

service iptables

Furthermore typing:

service [TAB][TAB]

Presents a list of services available. Is this what you were reffering to?
Comment 2 Pavel Alexeev 2008-12-15 06:27:13 EST
Yes it is. But it is not worked for me before manual installing mentioned script.

What file refer to it in /usr/share/bash-completion/ ??
Comment 3 john5342 2008-12-15 11:12:55 EST
Its not in /usr/share/bash-completion/*

Its in /etc/bash_completion
Comment 4 Pavel Alexeev 2008-12-16 02:26:22 EST
Hm, sure it is present. So, this is my mistake in this case.

But may be it is because bash-completion required relogin to take effect? I install package, and don't find any completion after "service" keyword...
I think will more graceful if in %post script will be done all initialisation, what was made on login from .bashrc or similar scripts? Can we there source appropriate script for current user?
Comment 5 Ville Skyttä 2008-12-16 02:43:53 EST
Sourcing it in %post would only affect the shell running the %post script, there's no sane way to push it into shells open elsewhere (and even if there was, I suppose it could be hard to decide which ones should it be pushed to).

As an alternative to relogin, you can source /etc/bash_completion manually after installing in shells where you want it.  Closing as notabug based on comment 4, thanks John for helping out.
