systemd unit file
I don't know my way around systemd that well, but I just installed biboumi on my server using it and had trouble getting systemd to daemonize it properly.
Right now it says:
@ [Service] Type=notify ExecStart=/usr/bin/biboumi /etc/biboumi/biboumi.cfg ExecReload=/bin/kill -s USR1 $MAINPID WatchdogSec=10 Restart=always User=nobody Group=nobody @
But there were three or four problems I ran into:
@make install@ installs to /usr/local/bin/
@type=notify@ should be @type=service@ or else @systemctl start@ hangs (and I'm scared that it will hang my entire boot, but systemd is probably smarter than that right?)
my server didn't come with a @nobody@ group. I have @nogroup@ instead.
related to 3: I had to manually fiddle with permissions. The compile+install instructions should explain about picking the user to run as for your system and the makefile should install /etc/biboumi/biboumi.cfg with the correct permissions.
Thanks for the great software! I was using https://www.ejabberd.im/mod_irc but biboumi is just sooo much more reliable and, importantly, maintained.
