If you are using daemontools http://www.freshports.org/sysutils/daemontools/ and you try to start a service, and you get this message:
# svc -u /var/service/fp-listen
svc: warning: unable to control /var/service/fp-listen: file does not exist
Then svscan is probably not running. Start it like this:
# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/svscan.sh start
You'll also need svscan_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf
FreshPorts uses DaemonTools to keep its daemons running. These daemons aren't really daemons... they are shell/python scripts, but they must be running all the time.
