Main daemons are meant to be run from the boot process.

We should provide generic init scripts to handle the start/stop tasks in a clean an easy manner.

Besides we should provide at least samples or templates for major distributions like fedora and debian/ubuntu.

Mac OS X should be handled to in the proper way.

You could use the init scripts which utilize the start-stop-daemon from our Gentoo Linux ebuild as a starting point. See http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=69553 (files/init-drqmd-0.64.3, files/init-drqsd-0.64.3, ...)

I think there should be init scripts for all mayor distributions following to their coding / tools standards.

#2 Updated by Andreas Schröder almost 10 years ago

There is now an ebuild along with configuration files and init scripts for Gentoo in /contrib.

More distribution support files should be added in the future.

The follow issue will be need to be completed before init scripts will be of any good.

"Make the slave retry connections to the master on failure"

I wrote Some Scripts for my own, but i agree, a problem is that the slave not retry after lost connection. Here it will only a Problem from the OSX Clients. All Linux Slaves running without any Connection lost.

Just a Bad Hack, but it works and might be a Base for another one.

There's should be a large amount to discuss referring to such an controversial discussion - especially when http://onlinemeetingnews.com online meeting news might be concerned for significant alteration within the research.
