[Bug 682861] insserv does not work for smpppd

--- Comment #12 from Dieter Jurzitza <dieter.jurzitza@xxxxxxxxxxx> 2011-03-30

Hi folks,
I got a homework (#3)

djunix:/etc/init.d # grep -l "Required-Start.*network" *|xargs grep -l

but I have two questions (maybe dumb, but however :-))

Why the heck is insserv moaning about a runlevel problem that - as a matter of
fact - does not exist (not a single reference to runlevel 4 in the entire
directory /etc/init.d)?

Why does an _entirely empty_ INIT-INFO header of smpppd (let me guess: of any
file within /etc/init.d ?) cause the very same error message?

After edit:
# Provides: smpppd
# Required-Start:
# Should-Start:
# Required-Stop:
# Should-Stop:
# Default-Start:
# Default-Stop:
# Description: Start the smpppd for internet dial-up connections.

djunix:/etc/init.d # insserv smpppd
insserv: FATAL: service network is missed in the runlevels 4 to use service
insserv: exiting now!

Wouldn't it be possible to add a "-v" option to insserv that gives some real
information? I've been trying to support you guys somehow, but the output of
insserv -v <somefile> is not worth telling :-(

Thank you for clarifying ...

Take care
