Description N. J. Thomas 2021-04-15 05:05:16 UTC
After upgrading to 3.4.5 from 3.4.4 I get the following error when trying to start sa-spamd:

$ sudo service sa-spamd onestart
Starting spamd.
child process [87403] exited or timed out without signaling production of a PID file: exit 255 at /usr/local/bin/spamd line 3034.
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/sa-spamd: WARNING: failed to start spamd

This is happening in the latest pkg version as well as when built from ports.
Comment 1 N. J. Thomas 2021-04-15 05:06:11 UTC
I only tested on FreeBSD 12.2
Comment 2 N. J. Thomas 2021-04-15 05:07:34 UTC
I also tested on fresh installs of v3.4.5, same problem.
Comment 3 N. J. Thomas 2021-04-22 21:51:19 UTC
Ignore this. Needed to run sa-update. The error message was unclear.
