Qmail install success on 1.4; possible package bug?
I got Qmail up and running today on 1.4 and it looks good. Coming from
OpenBSD and having never done anything with FreeBSD or DragonFly before,
it took me quite a while to figure out where everything was, but I did
it. I have to give a hearty thanks to the people who put the DragonFly
handbook together; I'd have been really stuck without it. From the
OpenBSD perspective, I do miss having lynx and sudo as part of the base
Anyway, I think I've either found a package bug or it's just me being
clueless, probably the latter. As part of the Qmail install, I installed
the package daemontools-0.76. After I setup the service folders and
rebooted, I got boot errors from svscan telling me that it couldn't
start the 'supervise' processes. After some poking around, I think the
problem is that the supervise program is installed by the package in
/usr/pkg/bin, however that folder is not in the path of the shell
command that the included /usr/local/etc/rc.d/svscan.sh script runs.
When I copied supervise to /usr/sbin and rebooted, it worked fine.
Here's the only command that the svscan.sh script runs:
exec /bin/csh -cf '/usr/pkg/bin/svscan /var/spool/service &'
Good work on 1.4 btw!
