Description Jeroen Roovers gentoo-dev 2010-08-13 16:06:40 UTC
As discussed on the gentoo-dev mailing list, some ebuilds choose to create a /var/run/${PN} directory at installation time instead of at runtime. Our init.d scripts should check whether a subdirectory is present and create it if need be, instead of using keepdir in the ebuilds.

This bug report is a tracker for the specific flaws in affected packages - DO NOT COMMENT on this bug report, and file blocking bug reports for each affected package.

fgrep -H "keepdir /var/run" */*/*.ebuild eclass/*.eclass

Not included here are packages that install subdirectories in /var/run without using keepdir, such as sys-libs/pam.
Comment 3 Alexey Sarychev 2010-08-13 21:08:48 UTC
I believe this one will be a little better:

perl -ne 'while(/\\$/){chomp;$_.=<>;}; /keepdir/ and m#/var/run# and print "$ARGV: $_"' */*/*.ebuild eclass/*.eclass(In reply to comment #1)

Arg. Sorry about above. Mistakenly assumed from a log file this bug was for media-video/motion package, instead of a Tracker. Move along ...
Comment 7 Pavel Goran 2012-11-27 08:40:45 UTC
How come /var/run was moved to a temporary filesystem without fixing all these bugs *beforehand*? For now, when a stable system gets updated with stable openrc-0.11.5, the latter moves /var/run to tmpfs and the affected daemons suddenly stop working after reboot.

A partial solution for the problem would be making the affected ebuilds block the new openrc. (Though this wouldn't save users of the new stage3 that reportedly also have /var/run on tmpfs.) The actual solution would be to correct those ebuilds a year ago. :)

+1 for this rant. Not even single warning was given.

i add myself to the rant list... lot of daemons are broken on several servers here now, most of them stable
I have to manually edit/fix init.d files. What a mess...

Removing blockers that are have nothing to do with installing things in /var/run at install time.
