If a program, started through a service script in /etc/init.d, crashes, the status of that program will still be marked as 'started', but the program is no longer running. This results in the inability to start and/or stop the service.

Here's a small tutorial on how to fix this. http://www.ariejan.net/content/view/57/2/

Enjoy.

Isn't this problem already covered in the handbook ?

I'm not sure if it is covered in the handbook. But when I need help I first search the Genoo Forums.

mvr_rennes: There is quite a bit more information on the website than in your post. So I do recommend to visit my tutorial as well if you want to have a little more background information.
