Description Damien Miller 2000-10-13 04:19:37 UTC
The /etc/rc.d/init.d/cyrus script will mistakenly kill postfix's master
daemon instead of cyrus'


[root@neon djm]# ps ax | grep master
[root@neon djm]# service postfix start
Starting postfix: postfix-script: starting the Postfix mail system
[root@neon djm]# service cyrus start
Starting Cyrus IMAP:                                       [  OK  ]
[root@neon djm]# ps ax | grep master
 5488 ?        S      0:00 /usr/libexec/postfix/master
 5498 pts/2    S      0:00 /usr/cyrus/bin/master
 5508 pts/2    S      0:00 grep master
[root@neon djm]# service cyrus stop 
Stopping Cyrus IMAP:                                       [  OK  ]
[root@neon djm]# ps ax | grep master
[root@neon djm]#

Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2001-02-15 16:34:52 UTC
The pidofproc and killproc shell functions need to be modified to fix this. 
Reassigning to initscripts.

Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2001-02-15 16:46:34 UTC
Will be fixed in initscripts-5.64.2 and later.
