Tracker of Initscripts Review:


For example:


Please have a look at the wikipage 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FCNewInit/Initscripts and change your 
initscripts to comply with the LSB standard. Especially check the exit 
status and add a LSB Header. E.g. starting a service should return 
with 0, if the service is already running and stopping a stopped 
service should also return with 0.

Also check, if your service has to be _on_ per default, and turn it 
off in the old chkconfig line, if not.

Thank you.
