Fedora Core 4 Startup

This is driving me nuts, and it’‘s probably a stupid mistake, but the startup script doesn’'t seem to work on boot, though it does when running it manually.

Fedora Core 4, and I’'ve got the daemon script in /etc/init.d

ls -l jive*

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1995 Aug 25 14:40 jive-messengerd

I used chkconfig to add it as a managed service:

/sbin/chkconfig --list

jive-messengerd 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off

And the symlink is present in the rc5.d directory:

ls -l S20*

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 25 Aug 25 14:35 S20jive-messengerd -> …/init.d/jive-messengerd

The script even executes at boot, but jive does not start. However, if you

manually run S20jive-messengerd, it does start.

Any ideas of why this may be?

I see this happen too, but haven’'t poked at it yet. Perhaps I will… someday…

At what point is the boot process trying to start messenger?

If your install is built on MySQL as your DB and MySQL has not started yet I’'m pretty sure Jive will die, and thus allow you to start it manually afterwards.

Hope this helps


That’'s certainly not the problem in my case. Jive starts last, well after any depenency services.


I had same problem and solution was to run dos2unix on init script. For some reason the unix init script was in dos format. I hope this helps.
