Description Tim Niemueller 2006-04-27 17:13:39 EDT
Description of problem:
The 05led and 95led scripts contain wrong output redirects. Example:
echo "4 off" > /proc/acpi/ibm/led >/dev/null 2>&1

If you give echo test >/tmp/test1 >/tmp/test2 a try you will notice that the
output "test" will only appear in the second file, not in the first. This is the
same with the above redirect in the led scripts. "4 off" is being redirected to
/dev/null, but not to the /proc entry.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send IBM notebook to sleep
2. LED for UltraBay remains on
Actual results:
LED for UltraBay remains on

Expected results:
LED should be turned off

Additional info:
Can be fixed by removing >/dev/null from the command lines, also 2>&1 can be
removed as echo is guaranteed to not print to stderr (the source code explictly
reads "puts(.., stdout)".)
Comment 1 Peter Jones 2006-09-28 17:00:00 EDT
This is fixed in newer versions of the package.
