service starting by default, perhaps shouldn't
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:13 EST
The smartd service is started by default but then just sends mail/uses syslog on
failure. While useful for servers, this isn't necessarily useful for a more
desktop use case. It may make sense to just not start the service by default in
general; if not, then at least it makes sense to tweak the desktop live config
to not do so
I may remove the "chkconfig --add" from %post in Fedora specs (and leave it in
RHEL) in the next release.
You really want to change the defaults in the header of the initscript so that
it doesn't run, not removing the "chkconfig --add"
