The problem here is the new code in 6.2.5-5 to "only run in daemon mode if the global config doesn't." Unfortunately, the default /etc/fetchmailrc file contains a commented out daemon 300 line, which the grep -qs check is picking up, AFAICT. Anyway, uncommenting the line in /etc/fetchmailrc makes it daemonise again.... In fact, upon examination, it doesn't appear to be using /etc/default/fetchmailrc anymore... dpkg says it doesn't own it anymore, so the comment in /usr/share/doc/fetchmail/examples/fetchmailrc.example needs to be fixed, and possibly some kind of notice in NEWS.Debian so people know to delete /etc/default/fetchmail and fix /etc/fetchmailrc -- Paul "TBBle" Hampson, Paul.Hampson@Anu.edu.au 6th year CompSci/Asian Studies student, ANU Shorter .sig for a more eco-friendly paperless office.
