Description Mamoru TASAKA 2010-11-17 12:26:25 EST
Description of problem:
On rawhide:

[root@localhost ~]# service groonga status
grn_ctx_connect failed (
[root@localhost ~]# service groonga start
Starting groonga (via systemctl):  Job failed. See system logs and 'systemctl status' for details.

Currently I have no idea what this message means.

Comment 1 Daiki Ueno 2010-11-17 22:57:30 EST
After looking at the output of strace, I think this is due to the bug of runuser program in coreutils, used by daemon() in initscripts:

$ su
# id
uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root),1(bin),2(daemon),3(sys),4(adm),6(disk),10(wheel) context=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023
# runuser -s /bin/bash nobody
runuser: incorrect password

Actually it seems that coreutils-8.7-runuser.patch was recently added to coreutils-8.7-1.fc15.

Thanks for report, it's likely, due to heavy changes caused by adopting new PAM patch. Will check where is the problem.

coreutils-8.7-2.fc15 should fix the issue ( http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=205449 ) ...

Seems good, thank you.

# rpm -q coreutils groonga
# service groonga start
Starting groonga (via systemctl):                          [  OK  ]
# service groonga status
# runuser -s /bin/bash nobody
bash-4.1$ exit
