Default failures in boot.log

FC16:
3 failures in boot.log, for which I ran the status query:

# systemctl status tcsd.service
tcsd.service - LSB: Init script for TCSD
Loaded: loaded (/etc/rc.d/init.d/tcsd)
Active: failed since Fri, 11 May 2012 01:29:24 -0600; 6min ago
Process: 961 ExecStart=/etc/rc.d/init.d/tcsd start (code=exited,
status=137)

CGroup: name=systemd:/system/tcsd.service

# systemctl status akmods.service
akmods.service - LSB: Builds and install new kmods from akmod packages
Loaded: loaded (/etc/rc.d/init.d/akmods)
Active: failed since Fri, 11 May 2012 01:29:24 -0600; 7min ago
Process: 962 ExecStart=/etc/rc.d/init.d/akmods start (code=exited,
status=1/FAILURE)

CGroup: name=systemd:/system/akmods.service

# systemctl status uuidd.service
uuidd.service - LSB: UUID daemon
Loaded: loaded (/etc/rc.d/init.d/uuidd)
Active: failed since Fri, 11 May 2012 01:29:23 -0600; 7min ago
Process: 963 ExecStart=/etc/rc.d/init.d/uuidd start (code=exited,
status=1/FAILURE)

CGroup: name=systemd:/system/uuidd.service

However, the query gives no clue why they failed.

If you don't have a TPM installed then the startup of tcsd will fail. What TPM do
you have?
If you don't have a TPM then you should either "yum erase trousers" or "systemctl
disable tcsd.service"

You also could "/usr/sbin/tcsd -f" for more information as to why the daemon didn't
start.

I ran rpm -qa | grep -i tpm and got nothing.

# /usr/sbin/tcsd -f
TCSD TDDL ERROR: Could not find a device to open!

The kernel I am running is the vanilla fedora 16 release
kernel-3.3.4-3.fc16.i686.

So, I turned tcsd off.
Is this service enabled by default even though the machine has no tpm
device?


Thanx for the heads up.

Well, if you install the trousers package that service is installed and defaults to
on. Since you don't have any TPM hardware there is no need to have it installed.
I've never have seen it installed by default on any of my systems.

So....it isn't needed. While is doesn't hard anything....you may want to remove it
just to have one less unnecessary app installed.

The same goes for uuidd.

I don't know if you use akmods....but if you use that for your nvidia driver updates
from rpmfusion...you may need/want it.

Unfortunately, ecryptfs-utils-96-1.fc16.i686 requires libtspi.so.1
# rpm -qv --whatprovides /usr/lib/libtspi.so.1
trousers-0.3.6-1.fc16.i686

I need to use the ecryptfs tools, which is not restricted tp tpm devices.
To wit: excerpt from /usr/share/doc/ecryptfs-utils-96/README:

"In general, it is probably best to just type in your passphrase via
stdin every time you need to perform a mount. Future versions of
eCryptfs will allow hardware token devices, such as a TPM chip, to
protect your secret keys."

I see, but you don't need the daemon.... So "systemctl disable tcsd.service" would
seem to be in order.
