How to disable upstart job in Fedora rawhide?

(Warning: czenglish :)

There have been some requests to mark job files as %config(noreplace) in Fedora upstart package. Typical use case is to disable reboot on control-alt-delete, see #447997 - RFE: mark control-alt-delete %config(noreplace), #612175 - mark /etc/init/ files as config files. Job files are more likely scripts than config files, mark them as %config(noreplace) is unsuitable and these files are overwritten with each update.

Since upstart-1.0-2.fc16 (which is currently in Fedora rawhide (f16)) there is new directory /lib/upstart/init for job defaults. All job files from upstart package are installed there. In case upstart is just installed or upgraded from version < 1.0-2, symlinks referencing to /lib/upstart/init are created in /etc/init/.

  cd /lib/upstart/init
  for j in *.conf; do
    if [ ! -e /etc/init/$j ]; then
      ln -sf /lib/upstart/init/$j /etc/init
    fi
  done


So starting with this update it is possible to disable or change job without being overwritten by next update.

1. disable job
You can simply remove symlink from /etc/init/ or you can change job (see 2. change job) and add manual stanza to job file.

2. change job
remove symlink and copy default job file from /lib/upstart/init to /etc/init:
# rm /etc/init/control-alt-delete.conf
# cp /lib/upstart/init/control-alt-delete.conf /etc/init
# echo "debug" >> /etc/init/control-alt-delete.conf
