NAME - default startup script of ledd(8)

DESCRIPTION  is part of the ledcontrol package, which allows you to show
       arbitrary information on the normally-unused keyboard LEDs.
       is  the  default  startup script that ledd(8) uses. It is configured in
       /etc/ledcontrol.conf and checks the given conditions every few  seconds
       (by default every 5 seconds).  should  not be executed by the user, instead, it is started
       by  ledd(8)  on  startup.  See  ledcontrol.conf(5)   for   details   on

SILENCING  may cause a disk-access every time it check the conditions.
       This is due to the access-time feature of the ext2 filesystem. If  this
       bothers  you, you can disable the access-time updating from some files.

       Do NOT try this unless you know what you are doing!

       Mounting a partition with the option "noatime" disables the access-time
       updates  of  the  files  on that filesystem. You can add this option in
       /etc/fstab to have the filesystems mounted  with  it  by  default.  You
       probably  need to have it set for some files in /usr and maybe /lib. If
       you do not want to remove the access-time feature of all the files, you
       may  be  able  to  create  a  small  partition (or file) containing the
       necessary libraries and programs and using that.

       Another option is to use chattr(1) to remove the  access-time  updating
       of only certain files. I have not tried this, so if you do, please tell
       be how it works out.
