Description Robert Trace 2011-05-17 18:36:33 UTC
Under baselayout-1 initscripts could explicitly call svc_start/svc_stop to manipulate themselves.  These functions don't appear to exist in openrc/baselayout-2 yet several initscripts still use them.

Reproducible: Always




I'm opening this as a probe/tracker.  This seems to be something that needs fixing (either by restoring the functionality, or removing/updating the initscripts).  If it's deemed a legit bug, I'll open extra bugs to detail the specific initscripts that I know of.

Additionally, is there any good documentation on what functions/variables an initscript has access to and how to structure them?  I found [1] and [2], but there aren't any gooey details in there.  I did finally find bug 348724, comment 5, but that's only part of the solution.

What packages need updating?
Comment 2 Robert Trace 2011-05-17 20:46:55 UTC
So far I've found iptables, acct and fail2ban.  There may be more.  I've got patches for those three cooking right now.
Comment 3 Jeremy Olexa (darkside) (RETIRED) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2011-05-17 20:53:11 UTC
Ah, yes. Those define a custom restart() function. Bug 348724 is the documentation bug but this one could be for issues in the tree. I suggest opening new bugs for those packages (but remember to search first).
Comment 4 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2011-05-19 14:33:11 UTC
Another resource for making scripts openrc compatible is man runscript.
Comment 5 Eugeny Shkrigunov 2011-09-23 05:25:11 UTC
This packages too:
app-crypt/mit-krb5
net-fs/nfs-utils
net-misc/stunnel
net-misc/tigervnc

Created attachment 294101 [details]
old init script

net-dns/djbdns

doesn't seem to have a proper init script. I was using $attached,
but that stopped working with the new openrc system.

(In reply to comment #6)

that has never been a valid Gentoo init script
