Description of problem:
To add an option to chkconfig to enable a file/script to be converted and used
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: There are no results currently for this type option
Expected Results: With an option in chkconfig a user can convert his
script/file so that it can be included with the rest of the scripts
in /etc/init.d/ directory.
This could be done somehow by the command with option checking for the
beginning of the file (maybe for something in particular if needed) and adding
the default information. Then it would search for the bottom of the file and
add there the appropriate information. This could be, for instance, default
run levels of 345 to start/remove from as well as a restart/reload or whatever.
That's not the correct way to go about this; the correct way is to have a decent
documentation example so users can write their own scripts...
So your recommending a good documented template be setup/used for users to do
this. Then is that done? How bout keeping this open and doing that then at
least or stashing it away as a TODO?
Not done due to lack of time.
Ok, but wanted to do a status check as it had been over a year since last reply.
anything ever came of this as of yet?
This is probably best handled in the sysvinitfiles portion of
initscripts, not in chkconfig itself.
