the svstat and svc commands are a part of the daemon packages written by prof.D J Bernstein - http://cr.yp.to/daemontools.html
install daemon tools on your system and add atleast one-two services so that you have a test enviornment working.
well the trouble is that i am on red hat and unable to install it despite the instructions on the url above. please tell how to go about it?
the rest of the tasks are:
familiarize yourself with the svstat and svc commands.
> write your own program to mimic the functionality of the svstat and svc command.
> include these programs inside the busybox build tree and link them into busybox.
> Compile busybox as a static binary and ensure that the svstat and svc are available inside busybox.
how to go about it
