Operating system name and version: most recent raspbian

Hi guys,

I got some problems again. I want to run smsd as an non-root. so I was creating all my directories for the things configured in my custom conf file. but as soon as I start the "smsd -c /path/to/my/conf", it tells me "cannot read logfile"; when deleting the logfile specification, there are 9 major problems. every single problem is about not being able to open the directory/file or about not having writable access. whats wrong here? I mean I'm pretty sure about having all the access I need because in fact, i created the files/dirs with the user starting smsd (with custom conf).

hope you can help me!

-bests :-)

I fixed it! The only problem was using relativ paths in the smsd.conf :roll: :D
but i don't know how to mark it as "solved" :/
