Here is my source rpm and some binary packages of the mpt-status utility formerly found on http://www.drugphish.ch/~ratz/mpt-status/. All packages were build on CentOS with help of mock.
Starting with version 1.2.0-3 my package contains a port of the mpt-statusd init script from the Debian package. This feature requires the daemonize package, which is currently available from the EPEL repository (thanks to Sven Lankes and Niels de Vos #746783).
Since I lack hardware to test the package, CentOS 7 switched to systemd the CentOS 7 builds
should be taken with a grain of salt and tested carefully in your enviroment.
While the init script is installed and registered with chkconfig it will not work without a daemonize package which you've to organize yourself. I've lifted the depedency on this package and do not activate the init script for any runlevel.
