Description of problem:
There are no kill scripts in the "/etc/rc.d/" directory
hierarchy for the following init scripts "postfix", "privoxy",
"nscd" and "cups".
I often use the command chkconfig --list |grep "3:off"
on a fresh installation to get an idea of what services are off
(and therefore available to turn on for a specific runlevel)
(in this case runlevel 3).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Red Hat Limbo 7.3.92 with servers mentioned above.
2. Do chkconfig --list |grep "3:off" after fresh installation to
get a list of which servers are off for runlevel 3.
Actual Results: Postfix, privoxy, nscd and cups are not mentioned.
Expected Results: I would have expected to see that e.g. privoxy is
turned off for all runlevels.
... Now it isn't even mentioned by the output of chkconfig, although
the init-script itself is to be seen in "/etc/rc.d/init.d".

This is not an initscripts bug.
postfix and cups are intentional; they won't show up if they aren't the
configured MTA or print spooler.
The others would be bugs in the package. privoxy in particular is on all sorts
privoxy needs to actually use chkconfig, and not ghost the K/S** files; some of
that %pre and %post stuff certainly seems like overkill too.
I've fixed privoxy, assigning to jakub for the nscd fix.
I don't see any problems with nscd. I have
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 07-03 16:11 /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/K74nscd -> ../init.d/nscd
both on limbo install and 7.3 install, nscd's %post does
/sbin/chkconfig --add nscd
which makes the symlinks.
I'm not actually sure, but why does the super user have to do
"/sbin/chkconfig --add nscd" before this daemon is 'added' to the services /
daemons that lie in the 'scope of control' of "chkconfig" ?
All other services / daemons show up in the output of "chkconfig --list" by
default after a fresh installation.
I think it would be consistent to have _all_ services that are available, whether
they're on or off, regarding the runlevel that they're in, be listable by
the command "chkconfig --list" out-of-the-box.
strangely enough, nscd wasn't showing up as 'added' in an older limbo box I had
as well. However, on a fresh install of a recent development tree, it is
showing up in the chkconfig --list output, so I believe this is resolved.
OK, I'm seeing privoxy listed (privoxy-2.9.20-1) but I'm not seeing nscd listed
in the chkconfig output (nscd-2.2.90-21)
This minor bug is still present in Red Hat 8.0.
These services support chkconfig, but are not referenced in any runlevel :
Hmmm... as stated in Bugzilla bug id # 70678 my remark about ypbind is invalid.
That still leaves us :
isicom shouldnt be referenced by default - its for a specific serial driver so
not normally used
Closing bug. Reported behaviour of nscd is fixed, and the rest of reported
'missing' kill scripts are of no practical use.
