dnf-automatic "how to use"
Last modified: 2015-05-08 03:33:17 EDT
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.
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.
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
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?
Thanks for the report and solution. Fixed by in the doc .
