Operating system name and version: Slackware64-current
Version of smsd: 3.1.14
Smsd installed from: sources with slackbuild script from SBo
Name and model of a modem / phone: HTC desire
At running smsd with the rc.sms3 start command as root, I get the following message:
Starting SMS Daemon: Cannot open logfile
If I comment out the logfile specification in rc.sms3 and /etc/smsd.conf, I get the following errors:
Starting SMS Daemon: Spool directory /var/spool/sms/outgoing is not writable.
Incoming directory /var/spool/sms/incoming is not writable.
Checked directory /var/spool/sms/checked is not writable.
Infofile /var/run/smsd.working cannot be created: Permission denied
Shell /bin/sh testing failed: Cannot create test script file.
There was 5 major problems found.
Cannot start. See the log file for details.
I'm surprised if these files need to be manually created.
I can't find any info on this issue.
