Description Tom "spot" Callaway 2007-05-30 14:49:40 EDT
Spec URL: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/audio-entropyd.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/audio-entropyd-1.0.0-1.fc7.src.rpm
Audio-entropyd generates entropy-data for the /dev/random device.

Note that the service is enabled by default. Since this daemon needs no configuration, I say that people installing it want it to be running by default.

1. rpmlint has one lone line of output:
W: audio-entropyd service-default-enabled /etc/rc.d/init.d/audio-entropyd

As you say there shouldn't be a problem enabling this by default.

2. Should there be a condrestart for upgrades? You can add one if you think
it makes sense.

I see no blockers, so this package is APPROVED.

Don't forget to close this review once you have imported and built this package.
