Popfile broken after upgrade
 
I'm running Debian testing and use popfile to filter emails.

After an upgrade using synaptic something's gone wrong with popfile and it
won't work. I've been trying to remove it to re-install it but get this:


yariknow:/home/mrkeef# dpkg -r popfile
(Reading database ... 264826 files and directories currently installed.)
Removing popfile ...
Stopping popfile: start-stop-daemon: warning: failed to kill 15383: No
such process
No process in pidfile `/var/run/popfile/popfile.pid' found running; none
killed.

invoke-rc.d: initscript popfile, action "stop" failed.
dpkg: error processing popfile (--remove):
subprocess pre-removal script returned error exit status 1
Starting popfile: popfile.
Errors were encountered while processing:
popfile

Can someone please tell me how to get around this?

Thanks

Ok Thanks.

that allowed me to re-install, but I still can't run popfile :(

I'll continue working on it.

Hi,

Please check if popfile service is running.

jk@jk:~$ ps -ef | grep popfile
popfile 11528 1 0 13:41 ? 00:00:00 /usr/bin/perl
/usr/share/popfile/popfile.pl --set config_piddir=/var/run/popfile/
--set logger_logdir=/var/log/popfile/
jk 11649 11627 0 13:44 pts/5 00:00:00 grep popfile
jk@jk:~$
If a popfile service is not present, then your upgrade has caused
popfile to crash.
In that case, you can try removing /var/run/popfile directory and then
remove popfile package.
But please verify the side-effects of removing /var/run/popfile. I
don't know what all will be lost. Make sure there is no useful
information in that directory.

Regards,
Jayakrishnan
