Description adr 2006-07-05 07:46:11 UTC
Good working init script + conf for the ebuild!

--- /etc/conf.d/joymouse ---


--- /etc/init.d/joymouse ---

depend() {
	need modules

start() {
	ebegin "Starting joymouse"
	start-stop-daemon --start --quiet -m --pidfile ${PIDFILE} \
		--background --startas /usr/bin/joymouse -x /usr/bin/joymouse -- \
	eend $?

stop() {
	ebegin "Stopping joymouse"
	start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --pidfile ${PIDFILE}
	eend $?

+# NB: Config is in /etc/conf.d/joymouse
+# Provide a default location if they haven't in /etc/conf.d/joymouse

no need to use --background as joymouse already has a '-d' option

also, making PIDFILE configurable is pointless imo
Comment 3 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2006-07-08 08:54:50 UTC
might be useful to patch the joymouse package so that it has a --pidfile option, then we wouldnt need ssd at all

I think you're right. It can't be started as a different user.
