Description Thomas Deutschmann (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-06-24 08:01:51 UTC
The pure-ftpd runscript from net-ftp/pure-ftpd seems to be misusing "need net":

Per default, pure-ftpd will bind to "". Due to "need net", any restarting interface will cause pure-ftpd to restart, too.

When dropping "need net", maybe you should depend on "localmount" or "netmount"...

See for more information.

Reproducible: Always
