Description Lennart Poettering 2012-05-23 01:27:44 UTC
Please drop StandardOutput=syslog from the radvd.service unit file, as this overrides the default the user might configure in /etc/systemd/system.conf. As that file defaults to a similar default anyway the setting is entirely redundant anyway.

Also, please drop Requires=network.target (but keep After=network.target), as radvd works fine without network (it listens to netlink events), and the user should have the option to run radvd without upping all interfaces.

Comment 1 Petr Pisar 2012-05-23 06:48:07 UTC
Thanks for notifying. I asked FPC to change guidelines (https://fedorahosted.org/fpc/ticket/177).

radvd could not start without up and running interface formally. It required at least one configured interface. I will verify radvd copes with missing all interfaces and I will adjust the unit file.

Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2012-05-23 08:44:27 UTC
radvd-1.8.5-3.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.

Comment 3 Lennart Poettering 2012-05-23 12:25:08 UTC
Side note: by leaving in After=network.target you still get the desired effect that if the network is configured you will be started after it. But you no longer are the one who pulls it in.
