Description Linus Walleij 2003-04-29 08:28:07 UTC
Description of problem:
There is no way top configure RedHat to start gpilotd automatically on boot. The
only way to start gpilotd is to start the "settings" program. A script should
possibly be added to the init.d scripts to autostart gpilotd in runlevel 5 if
the user choose to install this package.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start RedHat
2.ps aux
3."gpilotd" is not running.

Actual Results:  No daemon was running.

Expected Results:  The gpilotd daemon should be started on startup.

gpilotd has to be run by the user and not on a system level.   Saving your
session after configuring your pilot makes it so that gpilotd will get restarted
on subsequent logins.

OK, how about making this a documentation bug about gnome-pilot?
Its strings don't mention the word 'session' at all,
and the RHL documentation doesnt either AFAIK.
