Blinkled does not know how to stop and start

  • I expect that this is an issue in 2.0.1 as well, but posting here in 2.1 anyway.
    blinkled puts the following service information in config.xml:


    But it does not create a file.
    This seems to have the following consequences:
    a) Status:Services - the stop/start/restart buttons try but cannot actually do their actions for blinkled
    b) When removing blinkled the processes don't go away - I guess the package uninstall code tries to call stop, but it doesn't work. Causes 2 sig11 errors when blinkled then dies from having its exe removed from under it.

    This is a package that is really easy to use for testing install/uninstall - small, has a pbi, has a daemon, service entry, menu entry… all the basics of a package and only 1 minute to install/uninstall. So would be good to have this last issue fixed.

    Shouldn't be too hard to fix, somewhere in the code it just needs to write out that rc file (like how other packages do, with write_rcfile()). I just need to find a few minutes to do it.

    A friendly (yearly) bump as it's still broken. :D

    Should be OK now.

    All good now… thanks.
