[LDM #HZS-503248]: LDM



Hi Ron,

re:
> Here is the result of that line.

Sorry, since ~ldm/bin is a link to ~ldm/runtime/bin, the 'ls' invocation that 
needs
to be run (and output examined and sent back to us) is:

<as 'ldm'>
cd ~ldm
ls -alt bin/

What we are looking for is the permissions on 'hupsyslog' and 'ldmd'...
both need to be owned by 'root' and 'setuid root'.  For example, here
is the listing for these routines from the LDM v6.12.14 installation
on one of my development machines:

-rwsr-xr-x 1 root ldm 108515 Dec 12  2015 ldmd
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root ldm  12412 Dec 12  2015 hupsyslog

re:
> I have rebooted my computer a few times and that doesn't help.

After a reboot (e.g., now assuming you just rebooted), does the PID
reported in the 'hupsyslog' error match the value in the rsyslogd
PID file, /var/run/syslogd.pid?  The reason I suggested that rebooting
might be the fix was that those two values did not match in the listings
that you had sent previously.

One comment:

- I noticed that the PATH defined for your 'ldm' user (as listed by
  'ldmadmin config') has the ~ldm/ldm-6.9.8/bin directory hardcoded at
  the beginning of PATH:

PATH: 
/home/ldm/ldm-6.9.8/bin:/home/ldm/decoders:/home/ldm/util:/home/ldm/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/sbin:/home/ldm/.local/bin:/home/ldm/bin

  The best way to include the LDM 'bin' directory is through inclusion
  of the runtime linked bin directory, ~ldm/bin (/home/ldm/bin in your
  case).

  You should remove /home/ldm/ldm-6.9.8/bin from your PATH and move
  /home/ldm/decoders and /home/ldm/util to the end of your PATH
  definition.  After the changes, your PATH should look like:

PATH: 
/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/sbin:/home/ldm/.local/bin:/home/ldm/bin:/home/ldm/decoders:/home/ldm/util

  OR, depending on if /home/ldm/.local/bin has anything that is needed
  AND does not contain old LDM bin content:

PATH: 
/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/sbin:/home/ldm/bin:/home/ldm/decoders:/home/ldm/util:/home/ldm/.local/bin

  OR even:

PATH: 
/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/sbin:/home/ldm/bin:/home/ldm/decoders:/home/ldm/util

After making the changes to PATH, please make sure that the changes are active 
(in scope)
before trying to start the LDM again.

Cheers,

Tom
