I'm triying to start the incron daemon "incrond" at boot but doesn't work.
I have done :
ln -s /usr/sbin/incrond /etc/init.d/incrond chmod 755 /etc/init.d/incrond update-rc.d incrond enable
But no "incrond" pid is running there.
Shall I absolutely use /etc/init.d/skeleton as a starting point or is it still possible to symlink to the existing "incrond" daemon, and how then ?
I don't have "service name start" available on this Lenny distro.
EDIT : as a cook book, here is the way I solved it thx to the hints of the answers
# Update the discontinued Lenny sources list ("vim /etc/apt/sources.list") # Reinstall incron ("aptitude reinstall incron"), maybe should also reinstall inotify-tools # Create manually the famous missing start script ("vim /etc/init.d/incron" and, chmod 755 this file) # Run the daemon at boot ("update-rc.d incron enable") # Check start/stop args passed to the daemon ("/etc/init.d/incron restart" and then, "pidof incrond") # Reboot and control again that the daemon incrond is running (use "pidof" or "ps -ef | grep incron" or "cat /var/run/incron.pid")
