    chkconfig complains about /sbin/insserv

    Just came across this useful solution to a bug with chkconfig. Thought I'd share it with you.

    I was trying to disable the openvpn service on a 12.04 server using chkconfig and encountered this error:

    Code:
    # chkconfig -s openvpn off
    /sbin/insserv: No such file or directory
    The actual file is /usr/lib/insserv/insserv so you need to create a symlink to it like this:

    Code:
    cd /sbin
    ln -s ../usr/lib/insserv/insserv

    I can confirm this bug. I came up with the same solution and now it works perfectly.
