Description Vadym Chepkov 2008-06-21 11:52:34 UTC
Description of problem:
clamav-milter posts a negative pid in the pid file, init script fails to 
shutdown the daemon.

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


How reproducible:

'service clamav-milter stop' fails

Comment 1 Vadym Chepkov 2008-07-13 17:05:52 UTC
I examined this more closely and find out that init script tries to cope with
this by adding sed -i -e 's/-//' $pidfile command after the milter's start. The
problem is it can (and it does) reach this before milter created the pid file
and pid stays negative. The proper solution, I would think, should be to modify
killproc function to handle negative pids, but as a workaround the sed command
could be added before call to killproc.

Comment 5 Vadym Chepkov 2008-07-17 18:14:41 UTC
For some reasons /etc/rc.d/init.d/clamav-milter is marked as a config file in 
clamav-milter-sysv, so I had to manually remove my "patch". sed command call in 
this script is also redundant, since bug was fixed.
