Redhat has all the rc.d setup as well, with entries pointing in load order to the mysqld, httpd, atalk entries in the init.d directory.
However it acts like its ignoring those. Other things in the rc.d directories are loading ok.
So yeah, somewhere they is some other conf/script/setup file that is determining WHAT to run in the init.d. Strange though redhat would go through all the trouble of setting up the rc.d directories when it doesnt use them???
Right now, things run if i manually execute them via /etc/rc.d/init.d/thingd start.
I don't do KDE, nor Gnome, so Sys V isnt existing on the machine. No man entries for any variation on the term/application either. I am digging through the /etc directory looking for some sort of start services script... so far no luck.
