Hello,
I have an application that needs to startup on boot. When I install the application I get an error stating /lib/init/vars.sh No such file or directory. When contacting the developer he states it needs that file for reference of rcS system variables. I have two installs of CentOS 5.4 and neither of the two installs have this file. Googling it I see a number of end users getting the same error but no solutions. I was told the file is part of initscripts which is installed. Can I create the file or reinstall it?

Thank you.
