there's a bug in fail2ban 0.8.2-2

ref:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fail2ban/+bug/223706

resulting in:


host:/etc/init.d$ sudo fail2ban-client start
2008-05-22 12:22:27,411 fail2ban.server : INFO Starting Fail2ban v0.8.2
2008-05-22 12:22:27,412 fail2ban.server : ERROR Unable to create PID file: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/var/run/fail2ban/fail2ban.pid'

fixed in fail2ban v 0.8.2-3

Unfortunately the correct package is still not in the repository

In the mean time, just download the package from debian:
http://debian.mirror.inra.fr/debian/pool/main/f/fail2ban/fail2ban_0.8.2-3_all.deb

then install it:


sudo dpkg -i fail2ban_0.8.2-3_all.deb

thought it might help someone out there...

Thanks, I was wondering what was going on with this package. Hopefully it'll be added to the repository soon...
