Description Eido Inoue 2001-10-02 11:59:41 EDT
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 12:11:23 EDT
Verified. Strange.
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-10-04 15:13:01 EDT
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 15:14:02 EDT
(the release with the fix is 3.0.14-2)
Comment 4 John Dalbec 2003-09-10 17:10:25 EDT
I think condrestart could use a "sleep" also.  Otherwise upgrading pidentd stops
the daemon.  (I'm looking at 3.0.14-5.)
