    hi folks,

    i hope someone can help me with this one. i'm having trouble running
    cflowdmux and the following errors are syslogged:

    Feb 22 09:32:14 cage cflowdmux[26558]: [E] shmget(ftok("/usr/local/etc/cflowd.conf",0),2101248,IPC_CREAT|S_IRWXU|S_IRGRP|S_IROTH) failed: No such file or directory {CflowdPacketQueue.cc:241}
    Feb 22 09:32:14 cage cflowdmux[26558]: [A] g_packetQueue.Create("/usr/local/etc/cflowd.conf",2097152) failed: No such file or directory {cflowdmux.cc:457}
    Feb 22 09:32:14 cage cflowdmux[26558]: [A] failed to create packet queue! Exiting. {cflowdmux.cc:459}

    as you can see here, my config file does exist:

    [root@cage] /usr/local/etc# ls -la cflowd.conf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 5979 Feb 22 09:13 cflowd.conf

    contents of cflowd.conf follow:
