Description Marc MERLIN 1999-06-08 06:44:52 UTC
The "-" was finally added in the cron jobs, but it's still
left out of /etc/rc.d/init.d/inn, please always use "su -
user" (I've never seen a good reason for leaving the "-"
(in this case starting inn from a directory that only root
has access to puts out spurious "can't stat directory" (or
something) messages).
