RFE: allow to re-define ExecStart directive
Last modified: 2012-11-19 11:16:24 EST
Description of problem:
When user wants to re-define anything in a unit file, he's supposed to create a new unit file in /etc/systemd/system/name.service and use .include directive.
Suppose we need to add one argument to daemon binary in a service of type "Simple". Then we'd use something like this:
ExecStart=/usr/bin/foo -new -args ...
But this is not possible, because systemd reports an error, that we want to define ExecStart twice in a service of type Simple. But we don't, we want just re-define it. systemd should be able to do that, since changing arguments of a daemon binary is quite common task.
