Does RHEL6 support upstart user jobs?

I modified /etc/dbus-1/system.d/Upstart.conf and added a policy section for my username. I then created ~/init.d/userjob.conf.

When I do inictrl list it doesn't show up.

Does RHEL6 support this? If so how do I debug it?

User jobs are supported from version 1.3 of Upstart.


RHEL6 (or CentOS 6) use version: 0.6.5.
