Description Torfinn Ingolfsen 2007-02-18 23:50:05 UTC

port ddclient 3.7.1 fails to startup with the error message:
Feb 19 00:29:17 kg-omni1 ddclient[1344]: FATAL:    Cannot create file '/var/tmp/ddclient/ddclient.cache'. (No such file or directory)
because the directory /var/tmp/ddclient doesn't exist.


workaround: create /var/tmp/ddclient directory
fix: perhaps the port installation should crete this directory?

install ddclient 3.7.1 from ports
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/ddclient start

Sorry for the mess, I changed the cache dir to /var/tmp 
(no trailing ddclient subdir). Please follow up if you 
discover other issues. Thanks!
