Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 238772
fancontrol initscript never finishes execution
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:18:39 EST
Description of problem:
Running 'service fancontrol start' never finishes, it must be either stopped or
killed. As a result, if this service is enabled the bootup process stops here.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ chkconfig --add fancontrol
2. $ chkconfig fancontrol on
3. Reboot OR $ service fancontrol start
fancontrol isn't correctly daemonized so a prompt never returns / boot process stops
Short introduction, I'm a Fedora contributer and since I'm involved in
lm_sensors upstream, I've also become a co-maintainer of lm_sensors in Fedora.
Fedora's lm_sensors package does not install a fancontrol service. I guess you
installed the fancontrol.init file from /usr/share/doc/lm_sensors-2.10.3 into
/etc/rc.d/init.d yourself? Or did it end up there some otherway ?
Eitherway since we Fedora does not install it, we also do not support it. Please
report this issue upstream to the lm_sensors mailinglist and / or ticket system:
