Im on Ubuntu 12.10. I have a service that runs well when I do sudo service myservice start/stop

at installation, I did sudo update-rc.d myservice defaults and I see that there are in rc*.d some symlinks S93myservice and K93... pointing to /etc/init.d/myservice

But... after doing reboot I can see that my service is not running (status). Why ?

Stupid question after all, things worked fine. There was a exit in my script that would trigger on a special condition (other program running) at boot and not "long" after.
