 +==== Dealing with crashed services ====
 +Sometimes openrc reports a service'​s status as "​crashed"​. The process may have died or its pid file disappeared/​changed.
 +If one tries to start a crashed service, `rc-service` reports:
 +  * WARNING: <​service>​ has already been started
 +So one tries to stop it before starting again.
 +However in some situations, the service does not stop. This leads to a deadlock where one can neither stop the service nor start it. For such cases:
 +  # rc-service <​service>​ zap
 +  * Manually resetting <​service>​ to stopped state
 +**zap** resets the service state, allowing us to start it again.
 +==== Errors while booting ====
 +After installing or updating the **openrc-services** packages, you may get errors like:
 +   * checkpath: owner `netdata:​netdata'​ not found
 +This is because **openrc-services** contains services for some packages not found in the base Slackware install, but present on SBo.
 +These usually go away on their own after the openrc cache is updated.
