Description Ian Donaldson 2011-09-18 09:49:50 UTC
Description of problem:

Using yum update distro-sync from FC14 to FC15 doesn't leave
you with acpid, smartd, hwclock, readahead services enabled.

(and cron too, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=735802)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.yum --releasever=15 --disableplugin=presto distro-sync
2.yum groupinstall Base
3.grub-install /dev/whatever
4.sync; sync; reboot -f
Actual results:

ls -l /.readahead    - file doesn't exist
ps -ef|grep acpid    - not running
ps -ef|grep smartd   - not running, despite enabled in /etc/rc*.d

Expected results:

If running before the upgrade they should be running after 

Additional info:

These workaround the problem:

mkdir -p /etc/systemd/system/default.target.wants
ln -s /lib/systemd/system/systemd-readahead-collect.service /etc/systemd/system/default.target.wants/systemd-readahead-collect.service
ln -s /lib/systemd/system/systemd-readahead-replay.service /etc/systemd/system/default.target.wants/systemd-readahead-replay.service

mkdir -p /etc/systemd/system/sysinit.target.wants
ln -s /lib/systemd/system/hwclock-load.service /etc/systemd/system/sysinit.target.wants/hwclock-load.service

ln -s /lib/systemd/system/acpid.service /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/acpid.service

ln -s /lib/systemd/system/smartd.service /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/smartd.service


See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=735802 for the cron workaround.

I suspect these (and the cron workaround) should be mentioned
in the distro-sync to FC15 section of the upgrade notes as they
will affect every upgrade.

There may be other services similary affected; these are just the ones
I've spotted in my travels so far.

This is a bug in the scripts for the converted services - please file against them.

Comment 2 Lennart Poettering 2011-09-21 17:59:37 UTC
hwclock is unnecessary since PID 1 calls the one necessary ioctl anyway.

readahead got obsoleted by systemd's readahead implementation.

For the others please file individual bugs against those packages.

Comment 3 Ian Donaldson 2011-09-21 22:49:53 UTC
I got the hwclock, readahead etc links from a freshly installed FC15 system;
they were missing on my distro-sync upgraded one.

The readahead link is for the new systemd based readahead implementation.
