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.

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.
