Ventrilo and RHEL/Fedora

Well I just set ventrilo up on my internal dev server. Just trying it out because I've heard other people talk about it and thought I would integrate it better with my system. I'm running Fedora 14 on my server but all of these scripts should work on Fedora 12/14 and RedHat EL 5/6. Untested on the new Fedora 16. Here's the service script.
Code:
#!/bin/bash
#Created by Sam Gleske
#For RHEL and Fedora-like operating systems

# chkconfig: - 0 0
# description: ventrilo is the ventrilo daemon. \
# It is a team speak-like service which runs on \
# port 3784.

### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides: ventrilo
# Short-Description: start and stop ventrilo
# Description: ventrilo is the ventrilo daemon. It is a team speak-like
#              service which runs on port 3784.


# source function library
. /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions

# Startup ventrilo servers.
#working directory of the service
SRVPATH=/home/ventrilo/ventsrv
#Service binary
SRVBIN=$SRVPATH/ventrilo_srv
#user which the subshell will run
SUBUSER=ventrilo
#service name for status messages
SRVNAME=Ventrilo

start(){
  if [ -f "$SRVPATH/ventrilo_srv.pid" ];then
    echo -n "$SRVNAME is already running."
    failure
    echo ""
  else
    su $SUBUSER -c "$SRVBIN -f$SRVBIN -d"
    #renice -5 `cat $SRVPATH/ventrilo_srv.pid`
    success
    echo "$SRVNAME has started."
  fi
}
stop(){
  if [ -f "$SRVPATH/ventrilo_srv.pid" ];then
    kill -s 15 `cat $SRVPATH/ventrilo_srv.pid` &> /dev/null
  else
    failure
    echo "$SRVNAME is not running."
    return 1
  fi
  if [ "$?" -eq "0" ];then
    echo -n "$SRVNAME is stopping."
    wait && success
    echo ""
  else
    failure
    echo "$SRVNAME is not running."
  fi
}
wait(){
  while true;do
    if [ ! -f "$SRVPATH/ventrilo_srv.pid" ];then
      return 0
    else
      sleep 1
      echo -n "."
    fi
  done
}
restart(){
  stop
  start
}

#control center
case "$1" in
start)
  start
  ;;
stop)
  stop
  ;;
restart)
  restart
  ;;
status)
  status ventrilo_srv
  ;;
*)
  echo "usage: $0 (start|stop|restart|status|help)"
esac
HOWTO: Ventrilo install on RedHat/Fedora

1) Create the user ventrilo
Code:
adduser ventrilo
2) Write my vent daemon script to /etc/init.d/ventrilo.

3) Download ventrilo_srv-3.0.3-Linux-i386.tar.gz from ventrilo.com to ~ventrilo and extract it.

4) Make sure ownership of all ventrilo files and folders are to user ventrilo.

5) Control the service using the following commands.
Code:
# service ventrilo help
usage: /etc/init.d/ventrilo (start|stop|restart|status|help)
6) Add the service to the machine startup process if you want ventrilo to start on boot.
Code:
chkconfig --add ventrilo
chkconfig --levels 35 ventrilo on
Don't forget to poke a hole in your firewall (I hope you're using a firewall) for port 3784 and that should be it!
