I made a package for Slackware

The script for starting and stopping is slightly different and adapted for Slackware. I have tested it on Slackware 10.2, 11.0 and 12.0, but it should work with older and newer Slackware as well.

How to make it possible for a none super user to start and stop

Edit /etc/rc.d/rc.kissd
touch /var/lock/subsys/kissd
sudo touch /var/lock/subsys/kissd
rm -f /var/lock/subsys/kissd
sudo rm -f /var/lock/subsys/kissd

Edit sudoers (visudo) and add a line (make sure to add just one line, and without "\\" or whitespaces):
%users ALL=(ALL)NOPASSWD: /bin/rm -f /var/lock/subsys/kissd, \\
/bin/touch /var/lock/subsys/kissd

and all users are able to start and stop kissd.

How to make kissd start on boot

Add the following lines to /etc/rc.d/rc.local
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.kissd ]; then
  /etc/rc.d/rc.kissd start
