Description Yulia Kopkova 2009-11-25 17:37:57 UTC
Description of problem:

According to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/SysVInitScript cronie
component init scripts have lsb compliance issue:

Init script should return code "4" if restarting service under
nonprivileged user:
# su testuserqa -c "service crond restart"; echo $?
Stopping crond:                                            [FAILED]
Starting crond: crond: can't open or create /var/run/crond.pid: Permission denied
now: 1 
expected: 4

Comment 1 Marcela Mašláňová 2009-11-27 08:55:22 UTC
Would be great if someone add this 'code 4' into the manual because I don't see it there. In example should be:
start() {
    if [ $UID -ne 0 ] ; then
        echo "User has insufficient privilege."
        exit 4
    [ -x $exec ] || exit 5
    [ -f $config ] || exit 6

Solved in upstream - commit 37710f64c51c8a794e0d89683ed1ee5b71274e5a

Comment 3 Tomas Mraz 2009-11-27 09:02:38 UTC
I'd probably add it to stop() as well.
