On my system, the init script runs, but silently fails to start inspircd, though creating both /var/log/inspircd.log (empty) and /var/run/inspircd.pid (empty). I am using a slightly modified configuration file from a (working) inspircd configuration on another system, but since I get no errors, I have no way of knowing if the configuration file is valid or not.
