Description Eido Inoue 2001-10-02 15:59:41 UTC
using the /etc/init.d/pidentd or service command APPEARS to work, but by
doing a ps or a "status" command to the init scripts you can see that it
usually dies soon after starting.

the workaround is to stop the deamon again then start it. The *second*
restart appears to work.

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-10-04 16:11:23 UTC
Verified. Strange.

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-10-04 19:13:01 UTC
It fails with "bind(port=113) failed: Address already in use". Putting a sleep
between stop/start works around this.

Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-10-04 19:14:02 UTC
(the release with the fix is 3.0.14-2)

Comment 4 John Dalbec 2003-09-10 21:10:25 UTC
I think condrestart could use a "sleep" also.  Otherwise upgrading pidentd stops
the daemon.  (I'm looking at 3.0.14-5.)
