/var/run/dk-filter directory is missing after reboot

Bug #243106 reported by Justin H on 2008-06-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
dk-milter (Ubuntu)
Luca Falavigna

Bug Description

Description: Ubuntu 7.10
Release: 7.10
Version: dk-filter_0.6.0.dfsg-1

After a reboot, the dk-filter daemon will not start due to the directory for its socket and PID file not existing. The directory is referred to as $RUNDIR in the initscript, and is /var/run/dk-filter by default. It exists immediately after installation, but disappears after each reboot. The package's initscript should create this directory if it does not exist.

If dk-filter doesn't start, sendmail will not sign outgoing mail or verify incoming mail using DomainKeys.

  [ Justin H. ]
  * debian/dk-milter.init:
    - Create /var/run/dk-milter if it doesn't exist. Ubuntu mounts /var/run
      on a tmpfs, which is erased every reboot (LP: #243106).

  [ Luca Falavigna ]
  * debian/control:
    - Update Maintainer field as per spec.
