Description of problem:
When i install and run mldonkey and mldonkey-server on my (up to date) fedora
15 box, I have found that the rpm installation process seems to create the
necessary directory in /var/run (i.e. /var/run/mldonkey/), but upon reboot this
directory is not created in the tmpfs.
I saw this directory is necessary for it is in the init script in /etc/init.d/
you can see that the script will attempt to create mldonkey's .pid file in
As explained in the following post:
I had to create a file /etc/tmpfiles.d/mldonkey.conf
which contained the following line:
d /var/run/mldonkey 0775 root mldonkey -
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Very easily, see below.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install mldonkey and mldonkey-sever
2. add them via chkconfig to be on in init levels 345
3. reboot machine
4. see that the mldonkey daemon fails to start.
5. that there is no directory named /var/run/mldonkey
upon reboot mldonkey server fails to start
no directory named /var/run/mldonkey exists for the .pid file
upon reboot mldonkey server should start
directory named /var/run/mldonkey should contain the mlnet.pid file
The other way around fixing this could be to change the script in /etc/init.d/
to point to /var/lib/mldonkey so that the .pid file could live in there, but
that seems wrong to me.
