I made my own init script for starting a Mono web application within
mod-mono-server2 container (I didn't use
AutoHosting, I'm aware of it).
When I had openSUSE 11.4 with
init I was able to read on console exactly what went wrong. Now I had to migrate my app to a server running openSUSE 12.1 that uses
systemctl, and it's a mess to figure out why it fails to start.
The startup command is just a typical
sudo -u mono-user mod-mono-server2 [params] that writes the PID to a file in
/var/run/spambusters/ (to kill it when I want to stop).
When I try to do
/etc/init.d/spambusters start I just get a generic
Job failed. See system logs and 'systemctl status' for details..
But I can't get more information.........

While I understand that this question could also be suitable for serverfault.com because deals with server administration, my straight question is
