Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 483347
ipr daemons start on machines without ipr hardware
Last modified: 2009-02-16 11:40:46 EST
With iprutils-2.2.13-1.fc11.ppc installed, the ipr services (iprinit, iprupdate, iprdump) start at every boot, regardless of whether the hardware is present or not.
This is generally considered bad practice - unnecessary daemons and added complexity can lead to other problems, like bug 483340.
