Default amavisd-new and ACPI poweroff


When you press the power button to turn off the computer the process never completes because the amavisd daemon doesn't stop.

Does anybody know anything about this?

OpenBSD 6.6

No idea, as I'm not a user, but I have several suggestions:
  1. If the daemon was enabled through rcctl(8), use # rcctl -d stop amavisd to see where the process hangs. Refer to rc.d(8) for information on the -d flag.
  2. Disable the daemon through rcctl(), and after restarting the system, run the daemon manually with debugging, e.g.: # amavisd debug, as outlined in the /usr/local/share/doc/amavisd-new/README file. You can "log" the output with script(1).
  3. Contact the port $MAINTAINER, Giovanni Bechis. His Email address is available from $ pkg_info amavisd-new.

Hello again jgimmi!

There seems to be no problem when you stop it manually

# rcctl -d stop amavisd                                                                                   
doing _rc_parse_conf
doing _rc_quirks
amavisd_flags empty, using default ><
doing _rc_parse_conf /var/run/rc.d/amavisd
doing _rc_quirks
doing rc_check
doing rc_stop
Waiting for the process [68843] to terminate
Waiting for the process [68843] to terminate
Daemon [68843] terminated by SIGTERM
doing _rc_wait stop
doing rc_check
doing _rc_rm_runfile
In fact it is possible to shutdown the computer except when using the power button to do so.

I already posted on the mailing list a while ago. This has been hapenning since 6.3 if i'm not wrong. The moment i sent the message i received a reply from Bechis asking for more info on my system but that was all, no solution as far as i know. Don't know why.
