Boinc Fedora instructions

Description of problem:

The boinc clint does not create daemon script in /etc/init.d/boinc-client.

The documentation in /usr/shar/doc/boinc-client-6.12.43/USAGE_FEDORA says:

  What the installer does                               
   1. Creates the daemon script at /etc/init.d/boinc-client.

because the daemon script is not installed in /etc/init.d/

/sbin/chkconfig boinc-client on

will not set the boinc-client to start automatically when the computer boots.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install boinc-client
2. /sbin/chkconfig boinc-client on

Actual results:

error reading information on service boinc-client: No such file or directory

Expected results:

Daeon should be set to start every time Fedora boots.

Additional info:

Attached is the USAGE_FEDORA documentation along with the ls of my /etc/init.d

This is because init.d is not udes anymore but system.d.

Daemon script is there : /usr/lib/systemd/system/boinc-client
But it has a problem anyway. systemd cannot recognize it because its name should be 'boinc-client.service'.

I did the following to fix the service problem:

#cd /usr/lib/systemd/system
#ln -s boinc-client boinc-client.service

This is solved by https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/boinc-client-6.12.43-2.r25218svn.fc17
Comment 4 David M. 2012-07-07 18:45:59 EDT
Boinc-client services now seem to work properly.  Documenation now seems consistant with system behavior.
