Description Jeremy Katz 2007-08-21 13:59:16 EDT
Since you need to do configuration for lm_sensors to really be useful by
default, it probably shouldn't start by default.  lm_sensors is pulled into
default installs by hpijs->net-snmp-libs->lm_sensors and thus ends up impacting
the default boot time.
Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2007-08-21 14:10:43 EDT
Sounds reasonable to disable it by default to me, but then sensors-detect needs
to be patched to run chkconfig to enable the service upon a successfull
sensors-detect run. Any perl guru's who can help there (/me does _not_ speak
perl). If someone can whip up a quick patch to sensors-detect, I would be more
then happy to integrate it into the lm_sensors package and push a new build to
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-08-21 14:32:35 EDT
Something like the following should do the trick..

Comment 3 Hans de Goede 2007-08-22 15:59:38 EDT
Thanks, that works (verified). lm_sensors-2.10.4-2 is now building, with this
patch included and the service disabled by default, closing.
