service xyz start instead of /etc/init.d/xyz start


How in fedora do you enable the

service xyz start rather then going via /etc/init.d

I updated MySQL on a FC3 system following this guide:

http://forum.ev1servers.net/showthread.php?t=55335

That all works but I still can only start via /etc/init.d

Thanks,

Are you getting an error when using the service command? If so, copy/paste it so we can see what is happening.

No error no, it just doesn't let me use the service command

# service mysqld status
Usage: /etc/init.d/mysqld start|stop|restart

That just says that the "status" option is not supported by the script.
