I'm trying to run fetchmail as a daemon on fedora core 3.
built with the usual vanilla configure;make;make install
but can get no joy. The only way I can get
it to work is by using crontab with a script
that kills any existing daemon then runs one
with "-d 0" (which sometimes terminates and
sometimes doesn't - hence the kill).
-d 0 means "daemon mode off". Use a decent setting, such as -d 900,
when starting fetchmail.
