Salt-Minion Fails to Start on TrueOS BSD



  • This is what you get when you try to start the salt-minion on TrueOS via the service command:

    # service salt_minion start
    
    Caching service dependencies …
    /libexec/rc/sh/gendepends.sh: shell_var: not found
    /libexec/rc/sh/gendepends.sh: shell_var: not found
    /libexec/rc/sh/gendepends.sh: shell_var: not found [ ok ]
    /libexec/rc/sh/openrc-run.sh: ebegin: not found
    /libexec/rc/sh/openrc-run.sh: eend: not found
    ERROR: salt_minion failed to start
    

    I'm not the only one, seems to be a standard issue with how TrueOS is handling RC scripts: https://discourse.trueos.org/t/salt-minion-fails-to-start/2435/
