Weblog entry #2 for pablosanchez
The problem here seems to be the line:
start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --pidfile $PIDFILE --name $NAME \
--exec $DAEMON --test > /dev/null
and the one that really starts saslauthd.
$NAME always return an empty string. So as for start-stop-daemon, it throws :
"start-stop-daemon: --start needs --exec or --startas
Try `start-stop-daemon --help' for more information."
Also, it's not set through all the script .
After some guessing, i chopped the $NAME thing and saslauthd came into life .
I know that fiddling with /etc/init.d scripts is no good practice, but :
1. should i remove permanently the $NAME stuff ?
2. is really $NAME really needed here ?
3. what should be, in that case $NAME value for saslauthd ?
Any hints, welcome.
