Description Bojan Smojver 2012-05-31 18:45:28 EDT
Description of problem:
The script has:
pkill -SIGHUP -f clamd.clamsmtp 2>/dev/null || :

There is no such process. Only this:
/usr/sbin/clamsmtpd -f /etc/clamsmtpd.conf -p /run/clamsmtpd/clamsmtpd.pid

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wait for montly log rotation or do it by hand.
2. Get:
error: error running non-shared postrotate script for /var/log/clamd.clamsmtp/clamsmtpd.log of '/var/log/clamd.clamsmtp/clamsmtpd.log '

Actual results:
Error, most likely caused by pkill not matching any processes.

Expected results:
Should HUP the process properly (the manual of clamsmtpd doesn't mention HUP at all, but let's be optimistic).
