Description Bastien Nocera 2006-05-16 10:21:24 EDT

In parseconf.c, vsf_parseconf_load_file(), there's a call to:
str_stat(&config_file_str, &p_statbuf);
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

# vsftpd
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 – '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.
