Description Donovan Kolbly 1999-11-22 13:02:04 UTC
It is very difficult to discover that chkconfig is
the tool for manipulating the rc.d links.  There used
to be a README in /etc/rc.d/init.d that said so; could
this package please include a very short README that
says, essentially,

  use /sbin/chkconfig to manipulate the pointers
  in the rc*.d directories

This will help other sysadmins in the future!
