Description Curtis Doty 2007-02-09 21:59:51 UTC
# chkconfig --list fuse
service fuse does not support chkconfig

Fixing this takes just a couple comment lines in the initscript. And now that
Extras and Core are merging, it's more important than ever.

Comment 1 Peter Lemenkov 2007-03-02 20:19:38 UTC
I personally don't use chkconfig at all so I can't fix it. Possibly someone can?
If you provide a patch I'll apply it ASAP.

Comment 2 Curtis Doty 2007-03-06 20:46:26 UTC
It's just a comment line or two at the top of your script. I'm amazed this isn't
mandatory for Fedora.

Take a look at /usr/share/doc/initscripts-*/sysvinitfiles and/or peek at just
about any other script in /etc/init.d/ for examples. Since the fuse initscript
really only loads a module and tickles sysfs, it could be done early at same
time as netfs. Maybe something like this is enough for starters?

# chkconfig: 345 25 75

Comment 3 Eric Sandeen 2007-11-05 03:00:54 UTC
here's a patch.  I think starting in all runlevels (12345) is ok, and the
start/stop levels (25, 75) are probably ok at least for starters, though testing
might be good.

Ok, thanks.
I'll apply this patch asap.

Comment 5 Curtis Doty 2007-11-05 14:11:27 UTC
Please don't run fuse in single mode.

Also, it looks like Fedora is moving forward with LSB support. And since this
bug languished for so long now, it really should use that format. The URL to the
Fedora New Init System wiki page is added to this bug, FYI.

Comment 6 Eric Sandeen 2007-11-05 14:51:43 UTC
Curtis, skipping fuse in single user is fine with me, I didn't have any idea if
it should be run there or not.  It's not doing much, but I don't really care
either way. :)

Peter, you can just change it to:

+# chkconfig: 345 25 75

as Curtis originally suggested, if you agree with this.

Even if Fedora is moving forward w/ LSB initscript support, wouldn't it still be
nice to have old chkconfig working properly in, say, F8 via a fuse pkg update?

Comment 7 Curtis Doty 2007-11-06 19:50:21 UTC
Yep, it should have both chkconfig and LSB...for now.
