Description Anna Tikhomirova 2019-07-03 19:24:59 UTC
I'm having multiple issues with media-sound/murmur-1.3.0_rc2. I'm using Gentoo with systemd.

1) murmur-1.3.0_rc2.ebuild switched to using upstream systemd service file.
However upstream systemd service file expects the configuration file to be /etc/murmur.ini, not /etc/murmur/murmur.ini. The result is that the service cannot be started:

murmurd[25848]: <W>2019-07-03 20:59:51.741 SSL: OpenSSL version is 'OpenSSL 1.1.0k  28 May 2019'
murmurd[25848]: <F>2019-07-03 20:59:51.743 Specified ini file /etc/murmur.ini could not be opened

You need to either follow upstream and start using /etc/murmur.ini instead of /etc/murmur/murmur.ini or modify systemd service file.

2) All murmur-1.3.0 ebuilds erroneously copy scripts/murmur.ini instead of scripts/murmur.ini.system. I don't know why did you do this change, but this is wrong and should be reverted.
murmur.ini is missing some mandatory parameters. This results in service running as root, using db file /murmur.sqlite (yes, in the root directory), without logging and without PID file.

murmurd[25908]: murmurd: failed to open logfile murmur.log: no logging will be done
systemd[1]: murmur.service: Can't open PID file /run/murmur/ (yet?) after start: No such file or directory

3) And last but not least, logrotate file doesn't work with systemd.

I've attached the modifications I've made to fix the issue.
Comment 5 Anna Tikhomirova 2019-07-03 19:43:27 UTC
BTW, murmur.ini.system is present only in official release tarballs. It is missing in git and is generated by scripts/ Perhaps you need to modify the live ebuild somehow.
