syslog-ng3 doesn't write pid file in the correct place

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers

Keywords: Cc:


syslog-ng3 writes its pid file in /var and not in /var/run. This results in the the init script being unable to stop or reload it.

It can be fixed trivially by adding the switch "--pidfile=/var/run/" to the startup line in the init script /etc/init.d/syslog-ng
