vsftpd can't start with the default configuration on s390x
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:25 EST
In parseconf.c, vsf_parseconf_load_file(), there's a call to:
with fatal errors enabled.
config_file_str doesn't contain the filename, but the content of the config file.
(I don't know how that cannot be a problem on other platforms, might have to do
with the slightly different compiler options on s390x).
1. Install vsftpd
2. service vsftpd start
3. service vsftpd status will say:
vsftpd dead but subsys locked
500 OOPS: cannot open config file:/etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf

Forget about comment #4. It does crash with fresh install. Tested.
Missed this bug by testing vsftpd-2.0.1-5.EL4.4 due
BZ#158714 â 'service vsftpd start' says OK even if exit status of vsftpd binary
is 1, and does not pass on errors from that binary,
just runned service vsftpd start got [OK], and didn't rechecked the
status of vsftpd via vsftpd status.
