clamav-milter posts negative pid
Last modified: 2008-07-17 14:14:41 EDT
Description of problem:
clamav-milter posts a negative pid in the pid file, init script fails to
shutdown the daemon.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
'service clamav-milter stop' fails
I examined this more closely and find out that init script tries to cope with
this by adding sed -i -e 's/-//' $pidfile command after the milter's start. The
problem is it can (and it does) reach this before milter created the pid file
and pid stays negative. The proper solution, I would think, should be to modify
killproc function to handle negative pids, but as a workaround the sed command
could be added before call to killproc.

clamav-0.93.3-1.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
For some reasons /etc/rc.d/init.d/clamav-milter is marked as a config file in
clamav-milter-sysv, so I had to manually remove my "patch". sed command call in
this script is also redundant, since bug was fixed.
