Pushed to Rawhide, though untested yet until I have a systemd enabled machine available.
Comment 3 Honza Horak 2011-10-24 07:17:32 EDT
lighttpd doesn't start every-time with new systemd (systemd-35-1.fc16 and systemd-37-2.fc16 tested on F16 in VM, although it works on systemd-26-9 on F15). It seems like it starts correctly only the first time after system daemon is reload, so it is a race condition.

It seems to me like the PID file is not created fast enough, because systemd reports: "Failed to read PID file /var/run/lighttpd.pid after start. The service might be broken." If I run the daemon manually, the PID file is created right.

I'm proposing an easy patch that fixes the failure for me -- just don't demonize the daemon:

Same problem here. Honza's patch work for me.

+1 for the change from Honza.

Mattias, any objection to my committing Honza's changes?

No worries, anytime.  If you have any other packages needing this you'd like me to do, email me.
