I'm running dnsmasq on an Android Gingerbread platform acting as a wifi Access Point. When dnsmasq starts up I get the following
init: untracked pid 2407 exited
I suspect it has something to do with dnsmasq changing its user id because if I run it with dnsmasq -d then I don't get this behaviour. Among other things the -d option causes it to not change user Id. The dnsmasq process is still running however and seems to behave so I'm unsure if this is really an error. Here's the snippet of the 'ps' output, the pid of dmsmasq is always 1 higher than the pid in the message.
app_20 2377 2083 93392 16024 ffffffff 6fd0c51c S com.cooliris.media
nobody 2408 1 924 324 80206038 6fd0b45c S /system/bin/dnsmasq
root 2409 2077 904 316 00000000 6fd0b45c R ps
Having google'd this a bit it looks like an Android specific issue but there is no definite explanation as to what can cause it.
Has anyone seen this when running in an Android environment? Can anyone suggest the cause?
