Chimaera upgrade - ddclient

Following the upgrade of my desktop, from Beowulf to Chimaera, ddclient would not start, but reported :-

Unknown option: daemon 300 -syslog -pid /var/run/ddclient.pid

followed by the very long usage message.

After some fiddling around I finally (?) fixed this by moving the options from the command line to the config file :-

The following was added to /etc/ddclient.conf :-

daemon=300
pid=/var/run/ddclient.pid
syslog=yes

and then edited /etc/init.d/ddclient to set OPTIONS to be empty :-

OPTIONS=""

This then seems to work!

/etc/init.d/ddclient start
/etc/init.d/ddclient status
Status of Dynamic DNS service update utility: ddclient is running.
