Description Adam Thompson 1998-12-29 04:52:07 UTC
If multiple "cache_dir" tags are present in
/etc/squid.conf, the init script used to control squid
(/etc/rc.d/init.d/squid) breaks down due to the binary test
of $CACHE_DIR.  This assumes one cache_dir only.

In fact, this test needs to be a for... loop over all the
values of CACHE_DIR, and run the "init_cache_dir" mode if
*any* of them are invalid.

Try using my squid-rhcn RPM from
(They are _not_ produced by RedHat)

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1998-12-29 15:35:59 UTC
fixed in the next squid release (2.1.PATCH2-2...)
