Just set up a fresh Rails app-- RVM, Capistrano, Nginx, Trinidad; similar to Ryan Bates' Railscast on the subject.  Now trying to use trinidad init services to have trinidad run as a service.  It's not working:

↳  service trinidad_MyApp start
Starting trinidad daemon...

In the log file:

Cannot load daemon
Service exit with a return value of 3

We assume that this may have something to do with RVM and bundler/gem install paths.

I agree that this is probably due to rvm and/or bundler/gem install paths.  I see you are starting trinidad as root.  First figure out the rvm or bundler command to get paths set up properly (maybe rvmsudo and/or bundle exec) as root.

Faced with the same problem.

Need to populate env variables (see

1 Generate env variables file (for example: ruby version 1.9.2-p290, gemset projectX):
$ rvm env --path -- 1.9.2-p290@projectX # will produce something like /path/to/env/variables/file/ruby-1.9.2-p290@projectX

2 Add line (written below) to generated /etc/init.d/trinidad at top, right after RUBY_SCRIPT=...
source /path/to/env/variables/file/ruby-1.9.2-p290@projectX

and don't forget to set owner of to user running trinidad.
