systemd lirc unit bugs
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 \
;; broken into multiple lines, seemingly unsupported
; user =
: group =
;; first line is semicolon, second line is colon
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. reload systemd units
2. wait a while
3. check journalctl
errors (see attachment)
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?
irexec.service has the colon bug, and I can’t see trailing whitespace anywhere. Original copies.
> 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?
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.
(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.)
