Description Daniel Mach 2011-05-26 04:44:05 EDT
$ systemctl enable hwclock-save.service
Unit files contain no applicable installation information. Ignoring.

I believe adding following section to /lib/systemd/system/hwclock-save.service should fix the problem:


If this is really a problem, I'd suggest to audit all systemd services and add this section where missing.
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2011-05-26 04:47:10 EDT
in git this service is removed
Comment 2 Michal Schmidt 2011-05-26 05:09:43 EDT
WONTFIX for two reasons:
 1. The service is going away, as Harald mentioned.
 2. It is valid to not have an [Install] section if the administrator is not
    expected to enable/disable the service. hwclock-save.service is always
    pulled in from shutdown.target using the symlink
    (BTW, the administrator can still force a service like this to be disabled
     using the masking mechanism - symlinking the service name in
     /etc/systemd/system to /dev/null)
Comment 3 Daniel Mach 2011-05-30 04:56:46 EDT
It may be fixed in git, but it's still not fixed in F15.
I'm running latest packages (incl. updates-testing).

Please keep it open until the change gets into F15.

You must have misunderstood the 2nd reason in comment #2.
It makes no sense to do "systemctl enable hwclock-save.service".
