Description vfiend 2006-11-28 21:33:54 UTC
Description of problem: The smard service should have a description in
system-config-services, like every other service seems to.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): smartmontools-1:5.36-3

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open system-config-services
2. Click 'smartd'
Actual results: Description box is empty

Expected results: Description box should contain a description

Additional info:

Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2006-11-28 21:48:47 UTC
The /etc/init.d/smartd contains:

# chkconfig: 2345 99 01
# description: Self Monitoring and Reporting Technology (SMART) Daemon
# processname: smartd 

I don't know why system-config-services doesn't read this description.

patch to stop parsing initscripts at first non-blank, non-comment line

system-config-services stops reading initscripts at the first non-comment line
it sees. /etc/init.d/smartd has some blank lines before the description: line.
If you remove those, the description shows up in system-config-services.

One possible fix would be to have s-c-services stop parsing at the first
*non-blank* non-comment line.

This simple patch against system-config-services-0.9.1-1.fc6 should implement

Comment 3 Nils Philippsen 2007-01-31 17:10:28 UTC
system-config-services-0.9.6 is building right now which has a fix for this,
albeit a different one (your regex would only have matched lines consisting of
only "word" characters).
