See /etc/init.d/runsvdir

Unsure what direction the fix for this should be in
Comment 1 Ryan G 2023-09-02 02:14:04 UTC
I was able to reproduce this.

The following fails to start:

emerge runit
rc-service start runsvdir

To inspect the line:

grep runsvdir /etc/init.d/runsvdir

On Void Linux `/bin/runsvdir` is a symlink to `/usr/bin/runsvdir`, this fixed it on my Gentoo:

ln -s (/bin/runsv*) /usr/bin

I also had to change the `USER` line to my username, the shell expansion didn't work.
