Description Timo Maier 2004-08-08 07:12:13 UTC
/etc/init.rd/unrealircd start won't start unrealircd 3.2.1 because it does not know about a --chuid parameter

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Sven Wegener gentoo-dev 2004-08-08 07:39:44 UTC
The --chuid is an argument to start-stop-dameon, not to /usr/bin/unrealircd.
The paramters for /usr/bin/unrealircd follow the --.

Have you modified the UnrealIRCd config file at /etc/unrealircd/unrealircd.conf?
You need to do a few things to get UnrealIRCd working. You must set the
kline-address and the cloak-keys. And the tld block is invalid in the default
config file.
Comment 2 Timo Maier 2004-08-08 07:44:13 UTC
Yep, everything else seems to be ok, if I start unrealircd without this --chuid parameter.
Comment 3 Sven Wegener gentoo-dev 2004-08-08 07:53:28 UTC
I just re-emerged net-irc/unrealircd and the --chuid option is fine there.
Just modify /etc/unrealircd/unrealircd.conf and the init script should bring
up unrealircd without problems.
Comment 4 Timo Maier 2004-08-08 08:03:17 UTC
Did you emerge version 3.2.1? (ACCEPT_KEYWORDS=~x86)

I also didn't find any docs where this parameter is described.
Comment 5 Sven Wegener gentoo-dev 2004-08-08 08:16:32 UTC
Yes, I merged 3.2.1. Could you remove the &>/dev/null redirection in your init
script and check if unrealircd displays an error message?
Comment 6 Timo Maier 2004-08-08 08:28:55 UTC
Thanks for the hint:

* Loading IRCd configuration ..
[error] Couldn't open "": Permission denied
[error] Could not load config file
[error] IRCd configuration failed to load                                           [ !! ]

A chown unrealircd bad* has fixed this. Again, thanks for you quick help.
