Tue 19:33:06 <weasel> when you start it with tor -f torrc
Tue 19:33:15 <weasel> and it chdirs into its DataDirectory
Tue 19:33:22 <weasel> and then you send it a SIGHUP
Tue 19:33:28 <weasel> it says
Tue 19:33:28 <weasel> Jan 03 19:32:22.159 [warn] Unable to open configuration file "torrc".
Tue 19:33:30 <weasel> and dies
Tue 19:33:36 <nickm> ooh.
Tue 19:33:51 <nickm> what's the right behavior, do you think?
Tue 19:34:05 <nickm> To remember the original cwd and resolve relative torrc paths relative to that?
Tue 19:34:33 <weasel> yes, probably

This is a little more worrisome than it might seem at first. There can be more than one relative path,
after all: there might be more in the config file.

Maybe we should warn and quit if we're a daemon and torrc is relative.

comment:3 Changed 15 years ago by weasel

the very same problems occur when you aren't a daemon.
