Description Kai Fan 2019-07-31 09:52:33 UTC
Description of problem:

apt-cacher-ng service can’t start because of there’s no /var/run/apt-cacher-ng directory.

As the /var/run is a runtime dir, I have to add following line into [Service] Section to make it running.


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


How reproducible:

Just install and then try start the service.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install apt-cacher-ng
2. systemctl start apt-cacher-ng
3. systemctl status apt-cacher-ng

Actual results:

apt-cacher-ng failed to start

Expected results:

apt-cacher-ng started as a systemd monitored service

Additional info:

man systemd.directrives
man systemd.exec

The upstream solution is to use a tmpfiles.d snippet

Z /run/apt-cacher-ng 0755 apt-cacher-ng apt-cacher-ng - -
D /run/apt-cacher-ng 0755 apt-cacher-ng apt-cacher-ng - -
