Description of problem:
systemd units for those units contain bugs that are not parsed correctly. Example:

Documentation=System daemon handling events from IR remotes decoded \
by lircd
;; broken into multiple lines, seemingly unsupported
; user =
: group =
;; first line is semicolon, second line is colon
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/irexec /etc/lirc/irexec.lircrc

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. reload systemd units
2. wait a while
3. check journalctl

Actual results:
errors (see attachment)

Expected results:
correct load

Comment 1 Alec Leamas 2016-06-28 10:18:32 UTC
Hm... what's happening here?

- When I download a fresh lirc-core package using "dnf --releasever=24 download lirc-core" the downloaded lircd.service file is correctly commented with semicolons, not comma in both cases.
- Line continuation using \ is specified in the systemd.unit(5) manpage (and has been working well since long). Have you trailing whitespace after the  backslash.

Or, have you your own copies in /etc/systemd/system overriding the system defaults?

Comment 2 Chris Warrick 2016-06-28 10:30:32 UTC
irexec.service has the colon bug, and I can’t see trailing whitespace anywhere. Original copies.

Comment 3 Alec Leamas 2016-06-28 10:45:00 UTC
> irexec.service has the colon bug,

Indeed. Will fix.

>  I can’t see trailing whitespace anywhere.

Still, line continuation using \ is supported... What is the exact error you get?

Comment 4 Alec Leamas 2016-06-28 10:49:11 UTC
Ah... Documentation=  only allows URI:s, not free text. Need to fix this as well. Will update today or possibly tomorrow. I presume you can work around this for the moment.

Comment 5 Chris Warrick 2016-06-28 11:30:02 UTC
(I worked around it by removing lirc, which is completely unnecessary on a server. Located 1000+ km away from me. And in case you hadn’t noticed, there’s an attachment with all errors.)
