Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 656572
Please Update Spec File to use %ghost on files in /var/run and /var/lock
Last modified: 2012-08-18 22:37:43 EDT
Your package ddclient appears to include a file in /var/run or /var/lock. With an upcoming change in Rawhide these directories will now be mounted as tmpfs. For details about this change please consult http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/devel-announce/2010-November/000726.html For your package this means that you need add %ghost to all files that are placed in either of these two directories. Please make sure to make this change in time for the F15 cycle. For details about %ghost see http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm-snapshot/s1-rpm-inside-files-list-directives.html#S3-RPM-INSIDE-FLIST-GHOST-DIRECTIVE , for more information on the F15 feature see the feature page https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/var-run-tmpfs . If your package already uses %ghost on these files, feel free to close this bug report right-away. Sorry for this mass bug filing, and if you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask on fedora-devel or ask me personally. Thank you, Lennart
Fedora 15 is here and breaks ddclient's ability to create /var/run/ddclient/ddclient.pid, as described above. I believe this is an issue with Fedora packaging. If not I'll file a bug at the sourceforge tracker for ddclient.

I believe this is mostly fixed in ddclient-3.8.1-2.fc17, but it's still missing the %ghost declaration for /var/run/ddclient.
ddclient-3.8.1-3.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
ddclient-3.8.1-3.fc17 has been pushed to the Fedora 17 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
installed ddclient-3.8.1-3.fc17 and ran systemctl start ddclient.service and get
WARNING: Cannot create file '/var/run/ddclient/ddclient.pid'. (No such file

create /var/run/ddclient as needed on install
this will properly create the /var/run/ddclient folder if needed
