Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 175926
No indication whether services are running
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:19 EST
I've stumbled over this some time ago, but forgot about it. Now I'm following
your request on fedora-devel...
For some reason I had disabled the nfs services on my desktop and was not aware
of anymore. Then I bought a notebook and had the need for nfs access to my
desktop. I used s-c-nfs to set things up and was able to use the share right
away. After some time my desktop needed a reboot and I wasn't able to get access
through nfs anymore. Short term fix was to run s-c-nfs and open/close the
properties dialog. Until I discovered, that nfs services were not enabled... ;)
So here's my RFE:
Don't start nfs services silently. At least a dialog should be displayed when
services aren't running. Perhaps a check box could be added to enable the
services permanently through chkconfig.
A crappy mockup is attached.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
