Description Jeremy Katz 2007-08-21 14:05:05 EDT
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
Comment 1 Tomas Smetana 2007-08-23 07:24:30 EDT
I may remove the "chkconfig --add" from %post in Fedora specs (and leave it in
RHEL) in the next release.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-08-23 10:10:52 EDT
You really want to change the defaults in the header of the initscript so that
it doesn't run, not removing the "chkconfig --add"
