Thank you for all the great software.

I have been running fail2ban-0.8.1-1.el5.rf without issue.  When I yum 
update to fail2ban-0.8.2-1.el5.rf, fail2ban fails to run or even log an 

I don't know much.  I noticed the fail2ban.conf file has moved socket= 
/tmp/fail2ban.sock to /var/run/fail2ban/fail2ban.sock and 
/var/run/fail2ban/ does not exist.  I tried creating /var/run/fail2ban/, 
but that did not help.  I am guessing a permission issue, but don't know 
where to start.

Any suggestions?
