too many deamons by default - F7 test 2 live cd



Hi

Been fiddling with a installation of Fedora 7 Test 2 from the Live CD and it still enables way too may daemons by default. The following deserve special mention.

Hardware specific - Bluetooth (along with hidd), cups (FC6 even had smartcard daemon by default). Should check and enable on demand

Definitely superfluous - firstboot, livecd. Should disable after first run completely or even remove the packages.

Extra - cpuspeed. mdmonitor, netfs, ntpd, portmap. Can't see a reason to enable these by default.

Default? - Possibly NetworkManagerDispatcher since NetworkManager is enabled by default

Exim should probably replaced with something like esmtp or ssmtp in the live cd. Folks wanting to install a full blown MTA can install sendmail, postfix or email on their own.

Comments?
