This is all very odd. chkconfig, IIUC, merely creates the symbolic links
in /etc/rc.d/rc.[0-6] to /etc/init.d/<scriptname>. If there's already one
in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d that begins with an S, it should have been found by the
startup scripts.

Perhaps you could try chkconfig pgstartstop off, then on, and see if that

I assume that you've checked /var/log/messages for anything occuring
during startup.



Thank you Mark and Hugh;

Ran 'chkconfig pgstartstop off' then 'on' and it now appears in chkconfig --list;

pgstartstop     0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

I'll let you know how the reboot goes.
