User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:

chkconfig does not create correct entries for our init scripts in /etc/rc*.d.

The entries get created as S-1* or S50* irrespective of the priority number requested.

The entries were getting created correctly on chkconfig version ckconfig-

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Save the following script as say testinit in /etc/init.d
# ashish        this is a test script.
# chkconfig: 3 66 75
# description: ashish
# Provides:       ashish
# Required-Start:
# Required-Stop:
# Default-Start:  3
# Default-Stop:
# Description:

2. run "chkconfig --add testinit"

3. check the link created in /etc/rc3.d.
   -- It will be /etc/rc3.d/S50testinit instead of S66.

4. do the same using chkconfig-, and the link gets created correctly

Actual Results:  link named S50testinit is created in /etc/rc3.d

Expected Results:  link named S66testinit should be created in /etc/rc3.d

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2005-04-14 16:31:21 UTC
Your script has LSB comments; chkconfig is using LSB ordering semantics. Since
your script has no dependencies, it is being started at 50; if it had
dependencies, the priority would be adjusted accordingly.

This is the result of the fixes for bugs 85678, 144739, 149066.
