Bug 409469

Summary: sys-process/runit - make getty-ttyX symlinks optional
Product: Gentoo Linux Reporter: Ron Bickers <ron+gentoo>

Description Ron Bickers 2012-03-23 20:57:26 UTC
In every version of sys-process/runit, the ebuild adds symlinks that enable and thus immediately start getty-ttyX services.  I don't want these services enabled in runit at all, so I'm forced to remove the symlinks every time I upgrade.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade sys-process/runit
2. Unwanted /var/service/getty-ttyX symlinks are created and getty services start immediately.

Expected Results:  
The ebuild should leave /var/service alone and let users enable services as desired.
Comment 1 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2014-11-13 19:47:51 UTC
This should be fixed in 2.1.2.
Now the ebuild will set up services for you once, when you install the
package for the first time, but it should leave them alone after that.
