Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2023-01-11 12:34:51 CET
If you install the build system on a fresh install of Fedora 36, then you are rewarded with:

The reason for the failure is that systemd doesn't see the cenbuild service, despite it being installed in /etc/init.d.

It seems like systemd looks in /etc/rc.d/init.d instead. Usually this is resolved by /etc/init.d being a symlink to /etc/rc.d/init.d. However, that symlink is set up by the chkconfig package, which isn't installed by default.

We should probably look at converting our service to a systemd unit.
