Description of problem:

udev opens /etc/localtime 4192 times during boot

these 4192 times can easily be avoided with the following patch:

--- /sbin/start_udev~   2004-11-20 20:56:56.000000000 +0100
+++ /sbin/start_udev    2004-11-20 20:56:57.000000000 +0100
@@ -24,6 +24,8 @@
  
 sysfs_dir=/sys
  
+TZ=/etc/localtime
+
 [ -d $sysfs_dir/class ] || exit 1
 [ -r /proc/mounts ] || exit 1
 [ -x /sbin/udev ] || exit 1


with this in, we open 4192 less files during boot.

Has this patch been integrated
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2005-09-05 08:13:05 EDT
I don't see anything like this in FC4 or FC5.  Perhaps it was implemented in a
different way?
Comment 3 David Lawrence 2006-04-18 16:25:30 EDT
NEEDINFO_ENG has been deprecated in favor of NEEDINFO or ASSIGNED. Changing
status to ASSIGNED for ENG review.
Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 16:52:57 EDT
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

This patch was definitely integrated for FC6, as viewing /sbin/start_udev will
show.  I'm not sure exactly when it got integrated, but I think it's safe to
close the bug.
