The linux startup script contrib/start-scripts/linux in PostgreSQL
7.1.2 can be made easier to install by adding a few comment lines:
> # chkconfig: 2345 98 02
> # description: PostgreSQL RDBMS
< # Or check out the chkconfig program, if you have it.
> # Or, if you have chkconfig, simply:
> # chkconfig --add postgresql
Tested on Red Hat Linux 7.1 with PostgreSQL 7.1.2.
Relevant part of the chkconfig man page:
: Each service which should be manageable by chkconfig needs
: two or more commented lines added to its init.d script.
: The first line tells chkconfig what runlevels the service
: should be started in by default, as well as the start and
: stop priority levels. If the service should not, by
: default, be started in any runlevels, a - should be used
: in place of the runlevels list. The second line contains
: a description for the service, and may be extended across
: multiple lines with backslash continuation.
: For example, random.init has these three lines:
: # chkconfig: 2345 20 80
: # description: Saves and restores system entropy pool for \
: # higher quality random number generation.
: This says that the random script should be started in lev
: els 2, 3, 4, and 5, that its start priority should be 20,
: and that its stop priority should be 80. You should be
: able to figure out what the description says; the \ causes
: the line to be continued. The extra space in front of the
: line is ignored.
