Re: New LDM server

Hi Brian,

The problem you reported is not the problem I saw on nexraditr.iihr.uiowa.edu. Instead, I saw this:

address@hidden ldm]$ hupsyslog
hupsyslog: kill -HUP 4800: Permission denied

This is because of a missing step in the build process, a step you must do as root. That is,

address@hidden src]# make install_setuids

which I did.  Now, when I run ./ldm-6.2.0/bin/hupsyslog it works fine.

You, however, have a nonstandard installation. Instead of runtime being a pointer to ldm-6.2.0, it is a separate directory. And, that runtime/bin/hupsyslog doesn't have the permissions set right and will give you the error above.

I suggest you standardize the installation - it will make your life easier. Take a look at the installation on ldm.iihr.uiowa.edu. (It's my recollection that I changed that installation from something like what you have on your new machine to what's there now, the standard installation.) I think if you standardize the installation then when you follow the installation instructions it should all just work.

Give that a try and let me know if you have any problems. I'm happy to help you accomplish that.

Use the same username and password you use for the other ldm server.

Hi Brian,

Are you talking about ldm.iihr? If so, I just went to that machine and saw what would cause that problem.

On your system the file that hupsyslog is looking for is /var/run/syslogd.pid. A short, easy fix to that problem is to create a sym link from /var/run/syslog.pid to /var/run/syslogd.pid. I just did that, and ran hupsyslog as user 'ldm' and it seemed to work fine.

I will ask the LDM maintainer (STeve Emmerson) about your situation. I'm not sure why configure didn't figure out the right file name for that host - that may be a bug. So, I'll pursue that here, but in the mean time I think you're set to go.

I am setting up an new LDM server for Anton and I got an error when starting it that says:

hupsyslog: couldn't open /var/run/syslog.pid

I did a search, but couldn't find anything about that error. Do you have any ideas?
