Fedora Update Notification
2014-11-05 19:02:16

Name        : systemd
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 216
Release     : 11.fc21
URL         : http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd
Summary     : A System and Service Manager
Description :
systemd is a system and service manager for Linux, compatible with
SysV and LSB init scripts. systemd provides aggressive parallelization
capabilities, uses socket and D-Bus activation for starting services,
offers on-demand starting of daemons, keeps track of processes using
Linux cgroups, supports snapshotting and restoring of the system
state, maintains mount and automount points and implements an
elaborate transactional dependency-based service control logic. It can
work as a drop-in replacement for sysvinit.

Update Information:

- PackageKit.service is dropped from presets (#1154126)

- /dev/disk/by-path paths are again created for iscsi and other "well-known" scsi buses (#1157847)

- boot and shutdown timeouts remain disabled (#1154768)

- timers.target is not scheduled before basic.target to avoid a dependency loop during bootup when ntp is used (#1158206)

- Obsolete fi-latin1 Finnish keymap is dropped (#1151958)

- StartTimeout* options are ignored to avoid warnings if a patched fedup (from bug #1159292) was used in to upgrade which writes a custom /etc/systemd/system.conf to disable the start timeout.

- A mistaken assert that would cause an exception in systemd-python context manager code is removed.

- systemctl will guess the ".target" suffix when 'isolate' verb is used.

- shell completion suggestions will propose more units for 'start'/'restart' verbs.

- shell completion suggestions will be provided for 'set-default', 'get-default', 'is-system-running'.

- $NOTIFY_SOCKET is also set for control procs if NotifyAccess=all is specified in the service file.

- The mechanism with which systemctl asks for interactive authorization was changed to use the new d-bus flag for interactive authorization. Should not result in a visible change in behaviour.

- Hardware database entry is added for keys on compaq ku 0133 keyboards.

- Hardware database entry for Dell Inspiron 1520 is tweaked to avoid double keystrokes.

- Hardware database of Bluetooth companies is updated.

- A few (potential but unlikely to be hit) errors on out-of-memory conditions were fixed.

- Socket activation of systemd-journal-remote daemon is fixed.

- The --trust=all option of systemd-journal-upload works again.

- Socket symlinks now get proper SELinux labels.

- The shutdown process is quiet all the way into late shutdown.

- Compilation on hppa is fixed.

- Various man pages are updated and spelling fixes applied.

- System manager will not print status messages when passwords are being queried during boot.

- Other swap options from fstab, in addition to discard=..., will be passed to swapon. Currently none are supported, but this could be useful in the future if any are added.

- systemd-sysusers will not change the ownership and permissions on /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow when adding users (systemd-sysusers is not used by Fedora packages currently).

- Creation of a snapshot unit with an existing name will be properly refused.

- udev will not crash if an invalid log level is given on the kernel command line or in the config file.

- An error in the kernel-install script which caused it to exit with the message "Could not determine the kernel command line parameters" is fixed.

- Journal flushing was changed to by synchronous, so correct permissions are assigned to journal files, and the journal can be read by users in the systemd-journal and adm groups.

- systemd-journald-flush.service hang caused a by a race with
systemd-journald.service start is fixed by changing the latter to Type=notify.

- Fixes for #1161100, #986667.

- Fix udev timeout parsing.

- Use sync before reboot -f.
