Openrc cannot add ddclient deamon automatically [Probably a Bug] 28 August 2019, 10:02:41 Hi Artix folk,This my second post in a Linux forum, so I apologize in advance for any ambiguity or mistake.I'm running the LXQT - Openrc version of Artix. A few days ago I wanted to set up and run ddclient daemon. But I faced many problems.First, I didn't know that there is a ddclient-openrc script that should be installed along with ddclient. I think this should be added as a dependency because ddclient will not run without it. When I issued the command:Code: [Select]$ sudo rc-service ddclient startIt gave me an error message that I don't exactly remember, but it was something like "ddclient is not a known service".I thought it was a configuration problem, so I spent a lot of time playing with the "/etc/ddclient/ddclient.conf" file without any success. Then; I discovered by chance that there is an openrc script on the repositories, so I installed it; but another problem arose.When I tried to start ddclient service again, I got this:Code: [Select]* checkpath: owner `ddclient:ddclient' not found* ERROR: ddclient failed to startWhile waiting for my account at the Artix forums to be activated by admin, I searched online for a similar problem, and I ironically found a bug report related to systemd at this RedHat siteI followed the solution there and issued the commands:Code: [Select]$ sudo mkdir /var/run/ddclient$ sudo chown ddclient:ddclient /var/run/ddclientBut again, I received this output, as the ddclient user and group were not created automatically:Code: [Select]chown: invalid user: ‘ddclient:ddclient’After creating them manually, everything ran ok:Code: [Select]$ sudo useradd ddclient$ sudo usermod -a -G ddclient ddclient$ sudo chown ddclient:ddclient /var/run/ddclientFinally;Code: [Select]$ sudo rc-service ddclient start * /etc/ddclient/ddclient.conf: correcting owner * /run/ddclient: correcting mode * /var/cache/ddclient: correcting mode * /var/cache/ddclient: correcting owner * Starting ddclient ... [ ok ]Was there something I did wrong from the beginning? Or is it a kind of bug?Sorry if I elaborated a bit, and thanks for your patience.
