Subject Spamd Not Switching Users
Date Mon, 19 May 2008 22:02:38 GMT
I'm running spamd 3.2.4 alongside my stock Qmail installation (passing
messages over ip sockets via the qmail-queue patch) on Ubuntu 8.04.  Because
this is a site-wide config, in previous distros I'd been able to
successfully get both the "parent" spamd process and the spamd child to
switch uid/gid to the 'spamd' user.  Kicking off spamd in the same manner:
/usr/sbin/spamd -d -P -x -u spamd -m 1 -p 1783 -r /var/run/spamd/
-s /var/log/spamd/current -d --pidfile=/var/run/

I get (from ps aux):

root     23342  2.1  7.7  31240 28704 ?        Ss   14:59   0:00
/usr/sbin/spamd {snip}
spamd    23347  0.0  7.4  31240 27308 ?        S    14:59   0:00 spamd child

and from lsof -i:
spamd     23342       root    5u  IPv4  67329       TCP localhost:1783
spamd     23347      spamd    5u  IPv4  67329       TCP localhost:1783

So one's stepped down but the other has not.  In previous distros based on
SA 3.0.4 and an identical Qmail config I'd successfully managed to get both
processes to run as spamd.  Does anyone have any idea why I can't manage the
same here?

Thanks very much.
