Description Alexander Murashkin 2012-02-10 01:43:33 EST
Description of problem:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/libvirtd file has the following line

# Should-Start: hal

In accordance with http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/HalRemoval HAL is not used by libvirtd.

As a side effect of this line systemctl --all list-units command reports hal.service error

# systemctl --all list-units
hal.service               error  inactive dead          hal.service

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install libvirt-0.9.6-4.fc16.x86_64
2. Run grep hal /etc/rc.d/init.d/libvirtd
3. Run systemctl --all list-units | grep hal.service

Actual results:

/etc/init.d/libvirtd file has the following line
# Should-Start: hal

systemctl --all list-units output has the following line
hal.service   error  inactive dead     hal.service

Expected results:

/etc/init.d/libvirtd file does not have the line
systemctl --all list-units does not show hal.service

    daemon: Remove deprecated HAL from init script dependencies
    The init script for the daemon requests to start HAL although it has
    been deprecated long time ago. This patch removes the dependency.
