You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
after changes introduced during long-awaited initscripts redesign,
/sbin/service has unfortunately lost the ability to return the status if run by
It would be preferable to either teach it \'userstatus\' mode, or better yet
(since \'userstatus\' is confusing itself) implement separate /usr/bin/service
which would do \"read-only\" operations on behalf of user, even if
the reliability of the result would be reduced.
This won\'t hurt full-featured administrative version (/sbin/service) which
would have adequate (and root-only) means to better control processes but would
improve on user loyality.
Extensive discussion can be found in e.g. devel/sisyphus archives ca. May 2x,
wow. it even works 8-)
Let\'s say fixed in service-0.4-alt1
so be it =)
