Thread: spamd exit after logout if log enabled

  1. spamd exit after logout if log enabled

    Hi,

    As soon I enable logs (syslog or file), my spamd start giving me :
    "spamd: cannot run as nonexistent user or root with -u option" in the
    logs and spamd stop answering Exim as soon I logued out. It seems
    that the daemonize version on spamd have problem accessing logs...

    Here's my startup line...

    /usr/bin/spamd -d -x -q --ident-timeout=0 -u saspamd -r /var/run/
    spamd.pid

    Running on OSX Leopard (10.5)

    thanks

  2. spamd exit after logout if log enabled - UPDATE


    Adding a "nohup" in the startup script seems to solve the problem...
    Is spamd buggy in the way it open logs?

    thanks
