RFE: implement restart action in sandbox init script
Last modified: 2010-07-02 15:43:06 EDT
Description of problem:
1) "restart" action is not implemented in the init script
2) "status" action is implemented but not advertised when I run "service sandbox"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
sandbox initrc script is not a standard init script. It is just something that needs to be run at boot time. It does not start a service, it just sets up the file system so tools like sandbox and xguest/mls environments can use pam_namespace
Unless Bill has a better location for this, I think we have to close this as not a bug.
You could theoretically make it an upstart event, but that's probably overkill.
There seem to be two options for this bug:
1) (preferred) Find better location for it.
2) (easier) Despite the fact it is not a standard init script I think it would be good and easy to implement few actions required by init script quidelines. This is something we successfully accomplished in RHEL 6 init script project  for most components.
Fedora guidelines for init scripts  provide details what is the minimum expected from this bug. But we definitely shouldn't close this bug as a not a bug.
Fixed in policycoreutils-2.0.82-28.el6
