A quick look at the chkconfig
man page tells us this...
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 sec-
ond 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 levels 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.
