Description Greg Pyhl 2002-12-31 09:54:05 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021203

Description of problem:
Last line of /etc/rc.d/init.d/postgresql says:

exit 0

This should be changed to

exit $?

in order to get correct exit values when server is running/stopped/dead/etc.
Correct exit value is important for scripts and all other init scripts uses
them, too.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start and stop postgresql via init script
2. /etc/init.d/postgresql status

Actual Results:  exit value is always 0.

Expected Results:  exit value should depend on server state.
