Description Karsten Hopp 2008-04-07 14:20:57 UTC
FPC and FESCo recently approved packaging guidelines for initscripts http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/SysVInitScript . According to those guidelines only services which are really required for a vital system should define runlevels as the first parameter on the '# chkconfig: #' line in the initscript. Please consider changing the initscripts in this package.

Short intro: I've recently begun as an iscsi-initiator-utils co-maintainer and as such I'm looking into all open bugs.

The iscsi services are *vital* for systems using iscsi, so they must be enabled bu default.

iscsi-initiator-utils- which will be in tomorrows rawhide has rewritten initscripts, which will silently exit with a 0 status ASAP when iscsi is not needed. This should migate most of the complaints as a user no longer sees any messages (when not using iscsi) and the actual time spend in the scripts is negligible (all the detection code does is 1 grep)
