Description Kazuyuki Maejima 2005-01-10 05:11:40 UTC
Description of problem:

iiim service would not start, leaving the following message:

runuser: invalid option -- r
Try `runuser --help' for more information.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

Run /sbin/service iiim start (or restart when lock file remains)
Actual results:

IIIMF input server would not start.

Expected results:

IIIMF input server starts.

Additional info:

Tracing iiim initscript by `sh -x', I found runuser
called with oddly quoted arguments.  Apparently
-c option only took '"/usr/sbin/htt', and -retryonerr
was another runuser option, which caused the error.

+ runuser -s /bin/bash - htt -c '"/usr/sbin/htt' -retryonerror '0"'

Deleting backslashes from the runuser command line in
/etc/rc.d/init.d/functions solves this problem.

           $nice runuser -s /bin/bash - $user -c "$*"

After the above chage, arguments are quoted appropriately.

+ runuser -s /bin/bash - htt -c '/usr/sbin/htt -retryonerror 0'
