Description Darko Luketic 2016-11-11 18:18:49 UTC
Created attachment 453042 [details]

app-misc/sphinx-2.2.11 has no searchd.service
and also doesn't create a sphinx user

Using this service requires the following:
- creating a 'sphinx' system user
- creating /run/sphinx and chown sphinx /run/sphinx
This serivce file assumes /etc/sphinx/sphinx.conf being the default config file location and that the pid file is placed in /run/sphinx/

Suggestions for improvment:
add a searchd-indexer.service or .timer

There's an open bug
from 2014 for a user to be added instead of running sphinx as root
