Description Maciej S. Szmigiero 2019-08-03 14:33:54 UTC
net-proxy/dante sockd logs a warning when started from /etc/init.d/dante-sockd
init script:
sockd[1234]: warning: could not open pidfile /var/run/sockd.pid for writing: Permission denied

This is because by default sockd tries to create a pid file on its own
(even though the init script uses start-stop-daemon to do it on its behalf),
which fails since the sockd is running under an unprivileged user id.

Suggest to either change SOCKD_OPT="" to SOCKD_OPT="-p /dev/null" in
/etc/init.d/dante-sockd or to pass "--with-pidfile=/dev/null" to configure script
in the package ebuild so it doesn't try to write a pid file by default
unless explicitly told to.
