Description Newton Hammet 2002-03-14 15:08:31 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.7-10 i686)

Description of problem:
note that /usr/sbin/junkbuster is not started when boot to runlevel 5.
Also note that the script has an error where the return code from 
daemon is reported as ?$ instead of $?.
I was able to successfully start /usr/sbin/junkbuster by doing the
1. Create my own /etc/junkbuster/blocklist
  (move the original to: /etc/junkbuster/blocklist.orig)
2. Write my own script that uses "nohup" to start it the following

nohup /usr/sbin/junkbuster /etc/junkbuster/config >/dev/null \ 2>/dev/null &

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Simply reboot the machine. (from power-off, or any other state)
2. check process table (junkbuster will not be running)

Actual Results:  /usr/sbin/junkbuster is not running.

Expected Results:  1. /usr/sbin/junkbuster should be running.
2. It should have been reported on bootup with the green 'OK' status.

Comment 1 Karsten Hopp 2002-03-24 23:28:05 UTC
junkbuster will not be started in any runlevel unless you tell it to do
otherwise by executing 'chkconfig -level 345 junkbuster on'
The return code of the stop() function will be fixed in the next release.

Comment 2 Newton Hammet 2002-03-25 02:44:26 UTC
Your suggestion did not fix the problem.
I ran 'chkconfig --level 345 junkbuster on', rebooted, and the problem
still exists.

bootup messages show a green 'ok' saying junkbuster started, the lock file
is created , but junkbuster is still not running as verified by:
ps -ef|grep junk
after login after reboot.

If you need additional information I can supply it.

Comment 3 Karsten Hopp 2002-03-25 09:07:31 UTC
can you please run 'sh -x /etc/initd./junkbuster restart 2>&1 | tee /tmp/junkbuster_log'
and send me the output (/tmp/junkbuster_log)  ?
