Description Steven Green 2012-12-31 15:52:56 UTC
With the sensord use flag, lm_sensors installs /etc/init.d/sensord from sensord-4-init.d

sensord-4-init.d includes the line:

This should be:

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge lm_sensors-3.3.3-r1 with sensord use flag.
2. /etc/init.d/sensord start
3. Note that it fails to start because /usr/sbin/sensorsd does not exist.
Actual Results:  
sudo /etc/init.d/sensord start
 * Starting sensord ...
 * start-stop-daemon: /usr/sbin/sensorsd does not exist
 * Failed to start sensord                                                                    [ !! ]
 * ERROR: sensord failed to start

Behaviour is reproducible on my system.  Proposed change works.

  +lm_sensors-3.3.3-r2.ebuild, -lm_sensors-3.3.3-r1.ebuild,
  -lm_sensors-3.3.3.ebuild, files/sensord-4-init.d:
  Fix sensord init script that was typoed (thanks to Gordon Pritchard for the
  report); make it use /run directly, overriding the default pid file location.
  Remove unused for the slot.
