Total noob here. I'm seeing the exact same error as OP. I'm getting invalid argument when I try to run the CHOWN suggestion. I'm on mac os 10.7.5

Code:
Code:
chown ddclient:ddclient /etc/ddclient/ddclient.conf


also I see Paul Bredbury posted a patch. Could someone explain how I insert this patch? sorry for my noobness. not sure which will fix this first the code chown or the patch or both.

It should be asked to some osx user... but well, if you want try
Code:
adduser --no-create-home --shell /sbin/nologin ddclient

now you can redo the chown command

krinn,

Code:
emerge ddclient -av
gives me
Code:
[ebuild  N     ] acct-group/ddclient-0::gentoo  0 KiB
[ebuild  N     ] acct-user/ddclient-0::gentoo  0 KiB
[ebuild  N     ] dev-perl/NetAddr-IP-4.79.0::gentoo  USE="ipv6 -test" 209 KiB
[ebuild  N     ] dev-perl/Data-Validate-IP-0.270.0::gentoo  USE="-examples -test" 38 KiB
[ebuild  N     ] net-dns/ddclient-3.9.0-r3::gentoo  USE="-examples -iproute2" 58 KiB


So the user and client should be there.

i know NeddySeagoon, but you assume a gentoo prefix on osx
me, i assume osx only :
* he has only said osx
* the error he is speaking of is not the ebuild error, but maybe the one from ddclient itself (the permission denied...)
* username was set to ddclienthelp and that post only
* osx is bsd base, i think ddclient could be use on it so
* and he ask to us because we're the best :D

Moved from Networking & Security to Unsupported Software, since related to OSX
