Description Milan Kerslager 2005-07-02 22:19:05 UTC
The initscript for milter-greylist isbroken. There are fixed parameters for PID
file, socket path and run-as-user. Commandline arguments take precedence of
config file so editing config file is worthless and editing init scripts means
that the next update will remove our changes.

So please apply the attached patch to honor config file and allow to override
command line parameters via /etc/sysconfig/milter-greylist. The patch does not
change current behavior, just add new feature.

/etc/sysconfig/milter-greylist file

This /etc/sysconfig/milter-greylist file is like other config files for
initscriptsin FC or RHEL (httpd, sendmail etc).
You have to add this file to the SPEC file, see URL above with working packages
for RHEL3 and RHEL4.

Fixed patch for init script

There was a wrong patch to the socket file in the first (now obsoleted) patch.

Patch for SPEC file to utilize /etc/sysconfig/milter-greylist

Just to show how the SPEC file should be changed to utilize

Comment 6 Russell Coker 2005-12-23 12:02:11 UTC
While making such changes please put the socket into /var/run by default. 
Above is the FHS reference for the /var/run directory.  Below is the relevant 
"System programs that maintain transient UNIX-domain sockets must place them 
in this directory" 

Comment 7 Enrico Scholz 2005-12-24 13:00:43 UTC
ok, I changed 1.6 (FC-4) to read /etc/sysconfig/milter-greylist so that
'OPTIONS' can be overridden there.

I did not added the GRUSER/GRSOCKET/GRPIDFILE code because it is too complicated
for an initscript and slows down the bootprocess. It won't be compatible with
'initng' initmethod.

In FC-5/devel branch, the user and socket will be set in the configfile only.

I changed the location of the socket as suggested in comment #6, too. But only
in devel, not in FC-4 because an upgrade might break existing installations else.
