Description Mike Chambers 2002-02-21 23:00:07 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; Q312461)

Description of problem:
To add an option to chkconfig to enable a file/script to be converted and used 
in /etc/rc[0-6].d

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.man chkconfig

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.

Additional info:

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...
Comment 2 Mike Chambers 2002-02-22 19:28:06 EST
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?

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2003-04-02 23:05:23 EST
Not done due to lack of time.
Comment 5 Mike Chambers 2003-04-02 23:07:57 EST
Ok, but wanted to do a status check as it had been over a year since last reply.
Comment 6 Mike Chambers 2004-08-13 09:15:01 EDT
anything ever came of this as of yet?
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2004-08-13 10:32:02 EDT
Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2005-02-02 15:38:12 EST
This is probably best handled in the sysvinitfiles portion of
initscripts, not in chkconfig itself.
