Speech Dispatcher fails to create /var/log/speech-dispatcher/, no logs
Last modified: 2009-05-29 22:30:59 EDT
Description of problem:
Either the package for speech-dispatcher is failing to create /var/log/speech-dispatcher/ or it doesn't try to make the directory itself when the directory doesn't exist.
Consequently, nothing is logged to a file. When you start it yourself, you're told:
"Error: can't open logging file /var/log/speech-dispatcher//speechd.log! Using stdout."
rpm -q --filesbypkg does not list the directory.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install speech-dispatcher
2. /etc/init.d/speech-dispatcherd start
3. check logs
During step 2, you're told that the directory does not exist. step 3 confirms it.
I would expect the directory to exist and logs to be in there.
If I manually create the directory, the logs appear.
I've updated the package to latest release and cleaned up the spec file. This issue has been fixed. Can you please test the build in koji below and confirm its fixed your issue?
speech-dispatcher-0.6.7-1.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
