Description Langdon White 2015-02-23 13:05:12 UTC
Description of problem:
Would be nice if this page: http://dnf.readthedocs.org/en/latest/automatic.html told a user how to enable dnf-automatic. Plenty of documentation about how to configure but nothing about "when it is properly configured, setup this cron job to make it run every day" or what not.

Comment 1 Langdon White 2015-02-23 13:08:34 UTC
Digging some more... appears that the docs should say something like "once you are happy with the configuration, systemctl enabled dnf-automatic && systemctl start dnf-automatic" or some such.

Comment 2 Michael Monreal 2015-03-03 22:10:13 UTC
I have been wondering about this myself, especially since......

sudo systemctl enable dnf-automatic
The unit files have no [Install] section. They are not meant to be enabled
using systemctl.
Possible reasons for having this kind of units are:
1) A unit may be statically enabled by being symlinked from another unit's
   .wants/ or .requires/ directory.
2) A unit's purpose may be to act as a helper for some other unit which has
   a requirement dependency on it.
3) A unit may be started when needed via activation (socket, path, timer,
   D-Bus, udev, scripted systemctl call, ...).

What is the correct way to use this?
