.service is not necessary
Hi, you do not need to add .service to systemctl command. See Systemd#Using units.
When using systemctl, you generally have to specify the complete name of the unit file, including its suffix, for example sshd.socket. There are however a few shortforms when specifying the unit in the following systemctl commands: If you don't specify the suffix, systemctl will assume .service. For example, netcfg and netcfg.service are treated equivalent. -- Fengchao (talk) 00:37, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
- Yes! You're right .. I have fallen behind with the latest implementations of systemd. A user has had problems of a service (gdm) and I read in the guidebook that the suffix ". Service" was missing. But I made a mistake, the italian user "Ambro" who runs the Italian page of systemd me promptly informed. If you have not already done so I'll take care to correct the mistakes made. Thanks for your report!Veleno (talk) 12:22, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
- They are not mistakes. Both of them exist in Arch Wiki. But it seems using without .service is more. Maybe we can make a new style rule. -- Fengchao (talk) 14:09, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
