Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 826297
mldonkey systemd service file does not respect /etc/sysconfig/mldonkey
Last modified: 2013-09-22 19:56:22 EDT
Description of problem:
The options to /usr/bin/mlnet are hard-coded into the systemd service file, therefore the mldonkey server always gets started with '/usr/bin/mlnet -log_to_syslog yes -log_file /dev/null -pid /run/mldonkey' regardless of the options set in /etc/sysconfig/mldonkey
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. systemctl start mldonkey.service
2. change anything in /etc/sysconfig/mldonkey
3. systemctl restart mldonkey.service
The server is always started logging to syslog and using /var/lib/mldonkey as config directory
Depending on the environment variables in /etc/sysconfig/mldonkey the server should be started respecting those options
I'm no systemd expert, but /usr/lib/systemd/system/mldonkey.service should look something like this:
ExecStart=/usr/bin/mlnet -log_to_syslog $LOG_TO_SYSLOG -log_file $LOGFILE -pid /run/mldonkey
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Is this a joke? Come on guys, it's been a year. The fix takes about 5 minutes. Pretty please with sugar on top.
Why not become a packager, then you can do the fix yourself?
