Description Denys Vlasenko 2010-07-28 14:30:39 UTC
There is a typo in description line: letter D must not be uppercase.
It should look like

# description:	blah blah

then "blah blah" will show up in System->Administration->Services GUI tool.

Also please make this description meaningful for the people which did not spend last decade hacking on selinux. E.g. it should answer questions like: "when can I safely turn this service off?", "When I have to have it on?"

How is this?
# description: sandbox, xguest and other apps that want to use pam_namespace
#              require this script be run at boot.  This service script does 
#              not actually run any service but sets up /var/tmp, /tmp and home 
#              directories to be used by these tools.
#              If you do not use sandbox, xguest or pam_namespace you can turn 
#              this service off.
#

Comment 2 Denys Vlasenko 2010-07-29 13:49:23 UTC
with this change, System->Administration->Services tool shows:

Description:
------------------------------------------------------------
|sandbox and other apps that want to use pam_namespace
|
|
------------------------------------------------------------

IOW: not even close to something useful

# description: sandbox, xguest and other apps that want to use pam_namespace \
#              require this script be run at boot.  This service script does \
#              not actually run any service but sets up: \
#              /var/tmp, /tmp and home directories to be used by these tools.\
#              If you do not use sandbox, xguest or pam_namespace you can turn \
#              this service off.\
#

This is what is in Rawhide and RHEL6 now.

Comment 4 Denys Vlasenko 2010-07-29 15:07:48 UTC
Yes, adding backslashes fixes description (as shown by System->Administration->Services) in F13 too.
