rc script excerpt: using start-stop-daemon (rcscript_excerpt,275 bytes, text/plain)

Description Drake Wyrm 2004-05-22 11:31:06 UTC
When mpd starts, it immediately forks, so the pid file created by start-stop-daemon is invalid. When attempting to stop mpd via the rc script, start-stop-daemon can't find mpd, and returns an error.

Steps to reproduce:
# /etc/init.d/mpd stop

 * Stopping Music Player Daemon...
start-stop-daemon: warning: failed to kill 21353: No such process [ !! ]

Fix speculation:
The rc script should either issue a "kill" command directly to mpd (Bash networking) or use `start-stop-daemon --stop --exec /usr/bin/mpd
