Description Stuart Shelton 2011-05-24 18:30:47 UTC
start-stop-daemon documentation still says:

     -R, --retry timeout | signal/timeout
             You can either specify a timeout in seconds or a multiple
             signal/timeout pairs as a stopping schedule.  If not specified then
             a default value of SIGTERM/5 is assumed.

... which is the previous behaviour pre-openrc.

With the openrc start-start-daemon, using '-R' or '--retry' alone produces an error:

start-stop-daemon: option requires an argument -- 'R'

According to previous behaviour and the documentation, I'd expect this to be accepted as '-R SIGTERM/5'.
