Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2000:137 normal SHIPPED_LIVE : Updated stunnel packages available for Red Hat Linux 7 2000-12-20 05:00:00 UTC

Description Need Real Name 2000-12-20 22:28:11 UTC
The bug I posted at
is probably related to stunnel.
But bugzilla seems does not have stunnel in RedHat menu.

There is a problem with stunnel-3.9.1 from RedHat updates.
It has wrong paths compiled in and does not work properly because of this

/usr/sbin/stunnel -d 465 -r remote_host_ip:25
      It prints in /var/log/messages
      Dec 20 14:38:16 localhost stunnel[20230]: stunnel 3.9 on
      Dec 20 14:38:16 localhost stunnel[20231]: Cannot create pid file
      Dec 20 14:38:16 localhost stunnel[20231]: Create: No such file or
directory (2)

      See, there is a string /var/stunnel in /usr/sbin/stunnel 
      which is used in path.
      rpm -q stunnel
      [root@localhost /root]# strings /usr/sbin/stunnel |grep /var/stunn

The wrong string "/var/stunnel/" is compiled in.

Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-12-20 23:05:43 UTC
It also doesn't clean up the PID file when killed with a SIGHUP.  Both problems
will be fixed in stunnel-3.9-2.  Until it is released, use the "-P /var/run/"
option to work around this.

Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-12-21 21:31:13 UTC
The errata package will be 3.10-2.

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2000-12-21 22:31:49 UTC
The stunnel 3.11 was released today.
Seems they are hot-fixing some bugs.
