Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 441314
only services for a vital system should have a default runlevel list in their initscript
Last modified: 2008-04-09 08:07:54 EDT
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.
Ok I am not sure what vital means in this case. If you do not run this init
script on boot, the xguest package will not work correctly. This really is not
a service, it just sets up namespace correctly so that an xguest user can mount
usb keys while in a different namespace. So if the reason for doing this change
is to speed up boot and not start apps that are not "vital" than this does not
really match that expectation.
So not sure what I am required to do? Maybe this needs to be discussed on
Right, the main reason for this change is startup time, the other is security.
If there isn't any daemon that gets started this can be closed as NOTABUG.
