Less Confused

Spent the last few days since last week hacking away at my SuSE 8.2
workstation with Postfix.  Mailscanner and Spamassassin 2.54 from
CPAN.  Right now I'm getting some good logs in /var/log/mail......

However, when spam arrives I find that it is not tagged or checked by
Spamassassin.  Neither does Mailscanner do anything to the spam
either.  I've removed any reference to Spamassassin in the
procmail config files.  It's been explained to me that Mailscanner
starts Spamassassin and maintains it.  This being the case I have very
carefully checked the Mailscanner  config file.  Can't spot anything
and no error messages in the logs.

Is there any way that I can restart Spamassassin or stop it ?  Can't
find any way to do this.  If I can re-start it I might be able to get
an error message. Already tried ...    ' # spamd -D' ... with the

debug: Score set 0 chosen.
debug: running in taint mode? no
Could not create INET socket: Address already in use IO::Socket::INET:
Address already in use

This is probably because Spamassassin is already running.  "Score set
0 chosen" doesn't make any sense to me either.  All the rules are set
in the Spamassassin local.cf.
