Description Marco Di Fresco 2013-08-17 10:53:41 UTC
With default vaules in /etc/conf.d/g15daemon from install, runnng g15daemon with "/etc/init.d/g15daemon start" give a generic "ERROR: g15daemon failed to start".

By changing CLIENT_SWITCH_L1 from "no" to "yes" in /etc/conf.d/g15daemon, g15daemon starts correctly

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge g15daemon
2.rc-update add g15daemon default
3./etc/init.d/g15daemon start
Actual Results:  
"/etc/init.d/g15daemon start" lead to "ERROR: g15daemon failed to start"

Expected Results:  
Changing values in /etc/conf.d/g15daemon should be for user who want custom behavior from g15daemon, but a common user should be able to run it with the default values.

I can confirm that changing CLIENT_SWITCH_L1 from "no" to "yes" fixes the issue for me as well. According to the man page for g15daemon the default has now changed to the L1 key so the option in /etc/conf.d/g15dameon should now be CLIENT_SWITCH_MR and the default option, docs, etc. set accordingly. I've made these changes as well an improvement to the stop() code in the init.d script in my overlay:;a=commit;h=d9a9501479efbbc2de82501b7e54fc148b6b55dd
