Description of problem:
This may be one of those services:
Some services are incredibly hard to detect if they are running or not. While there are workarounds present to deal with these, it can't be guaranteed that they're detected properly. Please file bugs against the system-config-services component at http://bugzilla.redhat.com if you encounter such services.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install epel repository:
rpm -Uvh http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora-epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm
2. Install Firebird
yum install libncurses.so.5
yum install firebird-superclassic.x86_64
Start the process by running "/etc/init.d/firebird-superclassic start" then run system-config-services and try to start/stop "firebird-superclassic."
I've looked at the attached init script and it doesn't seem to implement the chkconfig service status protocol properly:
--- 8< ---
if [ -f $pidfile ]
[ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && echo "$FULLNAME is running (pid $pid)" || echo "$FULLNAME is dead but pid file exists"
echo "$FULLNAME is stopped"
--- >8 ---
It looks as if it would always return the exit code 0 (which means "running) when it should 3 for a stopped service. See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:SysVInitScript#Exit_Codes_for_the_Status_Action for details.
In this case I guess adding the line 'RETVAL=3' after the 'echo "$FULLNAME is stopped"' line should be sufficient to make the default firebird service behave with system-config-services. Changing product/component accordingly.
worked... We will email the Firebird group.
