Description Justin Lecher (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-05-21 09:37:51 UTC
if you have something like this

/etc/init.d/foo -> /data/src/bar/foo.init

with foo:

	echo "hello world"

local will timeout because of foo.

Comment 2 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2013-05-21 18:02:18 UTC
The issue is that symbolic links in a service directory (such as
/etc/init.d) must point to scripts in the same directory.
We already have a bug for this.
