Anyone who has used RedHat or Fedora on the command line will have used the service command for stopping/starting/restarting or displaying the status of a service in /etc/init.d/.
Here is a handy shell script with root as its owner and group which you can save as /usr/sbin/service to perform the same activities on SUSE Linux.
#!/bin/bash #/usr/sbin/service if [ $USER != "root" ] then echo "Must be in a root login shell to run $0" exit fi if [ $# -lt 2 ] then echo "Usage: $0 service_name stop/start/restart/status" exit fi set -e /etc/init.d/$1 $2
