Subject: Re: start-stop-daemon not found

The script errors with complaining it cant find start-stop-daemon.
I have been looking around but I 'm not able to find it, except for a source C file in /usr/share/doc/SysVinit-2.85/start-stop-daemon.c. it comes out of the SysVinit-2.85 package.


I'm trying to compile this file with gcc -o start-stop-daemon start-stop-daemon.c , again with many errors.


This is not a C program code file.


Did you read the file INSTALL and related files in the iptables
directory created when you extracted the tarball?

The referenced iptables/doc/faq.html gives very clear installation
instructions, and I did not find anywhere it said to run make.

Don't compile, just follow the configure/install instructions.

Should there be a start-stop-daemon file somewhere on the system ?? In which Package ?
I believe that such a file exists on Debian. But what about FC2 ?



The mentioned file : /usr/share/doc/SysVinit-2.85/start-stop-daemon.c is definetely C program source. it comes from the SysV-2.85 package.

Alexander Dalloz has helped me already by pointing out that fedora does not use start-stop-daemon but i should look for adapting the script that calls start-stop-daemon to change this to daemon with its correct options.


cheers
Edwin
