Subject: inadyn fails to write its own pid file due to folder ownership by root
Date: Tue, 10 Sep 2019 22:19:09 +0300
Package: inadyn
Version: 1.99.4-1+b1
Severity: serious

Dear Maintainer,

I'm running inadyn on a Devuan Beowulf (~= Debian Buster) system. inadyn 
is run as the user 'debian-inadyn', with . inadyn fails to daemonize, 
logging the following message:

Failed opening pidfile /run/inadyn/inadyn.pid for writing: Permission denied

And indeed, for some reason, the folder for its pid file, /run/inadyn , 
is owned by root. Since it's  not world-writable nor world-executable, 
inadyn can't write there.

That shouldn't happen...

Eyal,

inadyn is not a forked package and Devuan uses the Debian package directly.

This appears to be Debian #813347. You would be better adding your voice
there to get it fixed.

Thanks.

Mark
