Native systemd service file for munin-node
Description of problem:
The attached file is a native systemd file for upcoming F15 Feature 
Please read  on how to packaging and installing systemd Service files.
To learn more about Systemd daemon see .
To view old SysV with the new Systemd site by site see for your component see 
If you have any question dont hesitate to ask them on this bug report.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I do belive that this should be done in the package at install time not in the service
mkdir -p /var/run/munin 2>/dev/null
chown munin /var/run/munin
To test this.
Copy the file into /lib/systemd/system/ directory
Run systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl start/stop/restart/enable/disable munin-node.service

Unless I am missing something, /var/run is a tmpfs now... so the init script or systemd unit file would need to create it? The package can't or it would disappear after a reboot, right?
Moving systemd service RFEs to rawhide.
At this point, it is not appropriate in the Fedora 15 cycle to add these. Furthermore, at this point, we are still finalizing the packaging guidelines to handle SysV -> systemd upgrades.
We therefore request:
- wait until there are packaging guidelines (this will be announced on the devel list). This ensures that upgrades will work smoothly and we/you won't have to do multiple sets of changes.
- work on these sorts of changes for Fedora 16 where necessary, not Fedora 15, as we're trying to fix things for release.
- do *not* change a service from SysV to systemd in an existing release (such as Fedora 15), as this is the sort of behavior change that goes against our update policy, documented as https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Updates_Policy

Native systemd service file with directory and ownership creation..
Real service create the dir from it's initialization code others need to result to this ;)
*** Bug 702871 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
munin-1.4.5-9 has a native service file.
Btw should not this part of the service file
ExecStartPre=/bin/mkdir -p /var/run/munin
ExecStartPre=/bin/chown munin /var/run/munin
be moved into a tmpfile see
And please close bugs when FIXED ;)
Added /etc/tmpfiles.d/munin.conf entry and changed version to F16. For users that already have F15 init.d script converting to systemd.service file is problematic, and FPC decided not to change this method mid-release.
