Hi there,

I just wrote an init script for saslauthd on RedHat (tested on 7.3).
To use it, just copy it to /etc/init.d and do :

  chkconfig --add saslauthd

From there on, saslauthd will start automatically at runlevel 3, 4 and
5. By default, it will use saslauthd in /usr/local/sbin/saslauthd with
mechanism "getpwent". You can override that by creating
/etc/sysconfig/saslauthd and adding :

SASLAUTHD=/path/to/your/saslauthd
MECH=<the mech you want to use>

You should be able to RedHat-specific service management tools such as :

service saslauthd start # Start saslauthd
service saslauthd status # Tell if saslauthd is running
service saslauthd stop # Stop saslauthd
service saslauthd restart # restart saslauthd
chkconfig --list saslauthd # tell at which runlevel saslauthd start
chkconfig saslauthd off # Don't start saslauthd automatically
etc ...

Have a nice day !
