Good point. The original place which I had suggested was
/etc/init.d/lsb-init-functions, but some folks objected to this on a
number of grounds (a) they didn't like it in /etc, and (b)
lsb-init-functions isn't an actual init.d script, but rather a fragment
Does anyone care to suggest another location?
No one has commented, so I'll offer a few suggestions:
If no one comments, I'll choose /lib/lsb/init-functions. That seems to
make the most amount of sense.
2. killproc basename [signal] and pidofproc basename:
Can we replace basename with "path" ? If we have the full path
to a program it is much easier and safer to identify the right
This seems reasonable to me, although it's a change from what the
SysVinit package does. Comments?
I've heard no comments on this either. If someone thinks this is a bad
idea, speak now or forever hold your peace....
