Hi all,

I am trying to start a daemon 'kannel' with the following command:

su kannel -c "/usr/local/sbin/bearerbox -v 3 /etc/kannel.conf"

The daemon is supposed to be able to write to files located in
/var/log/kannel and /var/spool/kannel. I have set the permissions to 666
of both directories and even 'touched' the relevant files. However, all I
get is permission denied errors:

2004-04-26 15:52:47 [0] ERROR: Couldn't open logfile
2004-04-26 15:52:47 [0] ERROR: System error 13: Permission denied

What am I missing here? Thanx.
