I have Debian Lenny box, where I plan to extensively use
start-stop-daemon. The trouble is, the standard Debian
start-stop-daemon doesn't support output redirection:
--stderr keys, which I want to use to log daemons activity.
Should I just update
start-stop-daemon from sources? I tried
apt-get update process, the version still lacks features. Will it break something in Debian? Or should I compile new
start-stop-daemon to some new directory and use it for my daemons, leaving standard Debian package in place?
I don't want to write
.sh wrapper scripts to each daemon, as there will be many of them.
