Description Martin von Gagern 2011-09-08 15:11:33 UTC
# /etc/init.d/boinc stop
 * Caching service dependencies ...                     [ ok ]
 * Use of the opts variable is deprecated and will be
 * removed in the future.
 * Please use extra_commands or extra_started_commands.
 * Stopping boinc ...                                   [ ok ]

According to bug #381895 this variable was deprecated by sys-apps/openrc-0.9.x.

Updated, without revbump.
Comment 2 Martin von Gagern 2011-09-10 17:25:30 UTC
Judging from bug #381895 comment #1, I guess you should drop the reference to ${opts} from the assignment.

Furthermore, as attaching will only work if boinc is already running, it might be better to use extra_started_commands instead, and drop the part where boinc is started if it isn't running already.

See "man 8 runscript" for details.
