init script

Talk status
This discussion is done.

While looking for an init script I have been reading through and I wonder if it would be better to also use start-stop-daemon instead of calling su and killall.

This is what I'm using at the moment:

        ebegin "Starting XBMC"
        start-stop-daemon --start -u ${XBMC_USER:-xbmc} --background --pidfile /var/run/ --make-pidfile --exec /usr/bin/xinit -- /usr/bin/xbmc-standalone ${XMBC_OPTS} -- :0
        eend $?

        ebegin "Stopping XBMC"
        start-stop-daemon --stop --pidfile /var/run/
        eend $?
