I started with the idea of changing just enough of the included init script
to get the daemon running. I am used to the RedHat/Fedora sysv init
system, not the debian/start-stop-daemon style. I didn't want to snag some
other init file using start-stop-daemon, replace a variable, and submit it
as my own work. I'd rather learn the nuances of start-stop-daemon and
write a script that I understand and works as expected.
After testing a few other packages, I noticed quite a few that don't have
init scripts. Is this by design? I'd like to add the ability to generate
an initscript within the buildroot system. something like
$PACKAGE_GENERATE_AND_INSTALL_SYSV_INIT_SCRIPT = YES # with a shorter name
in the package.mk file that would use a template to create a working init
script. And a global toggle in makemenu -> Build Options to
enable/disable. yes? no? maybe?
To the optimist, the glass is half full.
To the pessimist, the glass is half empty.
To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
