    Hi i followed this tutorial to set up an IRC server on centos 5.1
    and i want to set Unreal to start when the server powers on.
    i created a symbolic link form: /home/ircdadmin/conf/unreal
    to: /etc/init.d/unreal
    i then ran this command but i got an error
    [[email protected] ~]# chkconfig --levels 235 unreal on
    service unreal does not support chkconfig
    [[email protected] ~]#
    how can i get Unreal to autostart?

    you can add this
    service unreal start
    to the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local

    /home/ircadmin/bin/unreal -u ircadmin -g ircadmin &
    sleep 2

    at normal command
    you WANT the IRC to run as the ircadmin user
    or what username / group you gave it to

    if its works
    than add it to the /etc/rc.local
    and check
