    [SOLVED] chkconfig help


    I am trying to set up a script to run at startup. The script is done. The symbolic link is done but it will not show up in chkconfig at all. When I try to run chkconfig --add name it tells me that name is not supported by chkconfig.

    I can get it started in the rc command but that does not show me the level it is at.

    you need to put the file in the /etc/init.d directory. It has to match a specific format (syntax) for the first few lines that pass information to chkconfig. I'd recomend you copy the lines from another script, and modify it a bit. Then, you run

    chkconfig --add scriptname
    and it will be absorbed and activated by chkconfig / service scripts.

    Thank you for your help. It took me a while (obviously) to get it to work but it works. Now I have to edit it so that it is MY script that it is running and not the one that I copied.

    I appreciate your help.
