[Support Tip] Error in SUSE Linux "Starting OVCtrl depends on pctl ..."

In SUSE Linux running agent version 11.10 (or 11.11) the following error may be encountered:

 
insserv: Starting OVCtrl depends on pctl and therefore on system facility `$all' which can not be true!

insserv: Starting OVCtrl depends on pctl and therefore on system facility `$all' which can not be true!

insserv: Starting OVCtrl depends on pctl and therefore on system facility `$all' which can not be true!

insserv: Starting OVCtrl depends on pctl and therefore on system facility `$all' which can not be true!

 
The reason for this is that SuSE 11 SP2 is LSB compliant.
Any startup script contains two LSB(Linux Standard base) tags which are further divided into two more. The base
tags are Required-* tag and the Should-* tag. In the OVCtrl startup script(present in /etc/init.d).

There is a contradiction between the Required and Should tags which is causing the issue, SUSE 11.2 is strict on LSB tags.

In the OVCtrl startup script(present in /etc/init.d), there is a contradiction between the Required and Should tags which is causing below errors:

insserv: Starting OVCtrl depends on pctl and therefore on system facility `$all' which can not be true!

insserv: Service syslog is missed in the runlevels 4 to use service OVCtrl

 

There is a hotfix for agent version 11.10 and 11.11

(This is already fixed in version 11.12)
