Freeswitch launch on system startup Fedora 16


Hi,

I've installed FreeSWITCH on Fedora 16. The FreeSWITCH has been compiled from source (there is no rpm). I want FreeSWITCH to be launched at system startup.

I've put a bash script from
http://wiki.freeswitch.org/wiki/Freeswitch_init#Fedora

into /etc/init.d directory with corrected paths, and run
#chckconfig freeswitch on

FreeSWITCH doesnt start at system startup.

Running
Code:
#service freeswitch start
Starting freeswitch (via systemctl):                       [  OK  ]
... but FreeSWITCH doesnt actually start.

Running
Code:
#systemctl enable freeswitch.service
freeswitch.service is not a native service, redirecting to /sbin/chkconfig.
Executing /sbin/chkconfig freeswitch on
Warning: unit files do not carry install information. No operation executed.
Running
Code:
# chkconfig --list freeswitch

Note: This output shows SysV services only and does not include native
     systemd services. SysV configuration data might be overridden by native
     systemd configuration.

freeswitch      0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
Running
Code:
#/usr/local/freeswitch/bin/freeswitch
works fine.

Please help. Thanks. The init script is below:

cat /etc/init.d/freeswitch
Code:
#! /bin/sh
#
# freeswitch:       Starts the freeswitch Daemon
#
# chkconfig: 345 96 02
# processname: freeswitch
# description: Freeswitch fedora init script \

Did you create a freeswitch user? Check your kernel messages to see if the freeswitch daemon tried to start but couldn't.

The message about systemctl indicates that your system uses systemd. My system just started using it, so I'm not very knowledgeable on systemd yet. I don't think that freeswitch adds the files needed for systemd, but this may not be needed if fedora 16 allows you to use either.

Try the command:
systemctl --type service | grep switch
Does it indicate "failed"?

Also, your config script header looks like it may be missing some items. Check the insserv manpage:
Code:
       insserv enables an installed system init script (`boot script') by reading the comment header of the script, e.g.:

         ### BEGIN INIT INFO
         # Provides:          boot_facility_1 [ boot_facility_2 ...]
         # Required-Start:    boot_facility_1 [ boot_facility_2 ...]
         # Required-Stop:     boot_facility_1 [ boot_facility_2 ...]
         # Should-Start:      boot_facility_1 [ boot_facility_2 ...]
         # Should-Stop:       boot_facility_1 [ boot_facility_2 ...]
         # X-Start-Before:    boot_facility_1 [ boot_facility_2 ...]
         # X-Stop-After:      boot_facility_1 [ boot_facility_2 ...]
         # Default-Start:     run_level_1 [ run_level_2 ...]
         # Default-Stop:      run_level_1 [ run_level_2 ...]
         # X-Interactive:     true
         # Short-Description: single_line_description
         # Description:       multiline_description
         ### END INIT INFO
Check the manpage on your system and any /etc/init.d/skeleton file. For example, should the runlevels be separated with spaces? Mine have Should-Start: & Should-Stop, and don't have a chkconfig: line.
