[Bug 158252] Re: dspam won't start: /var/run/dspam missing in tmpfs

I used the following at the beginning of dspam initscript :

[ -d /var/run/dspam ] || { mkdir /var/run/dspam; chown dspam:
/var/run/dspam; }

(Did the same for the "sympa" initscript)

I believe the "chown" can be useful in letting the daemon act on its
pidfile once started, isn't it ? If seen some daemons who are unhappy if
their /var/run/something directory doesn't belong to them...

dspam won't start:  /var/run/dspam missing in tmpfs
