Interesting. You are right, I forgot to add, unlike you, I change the
radmin group from the default freerad for security reasons, that is
probably the cause. I do not think it is a good idea to have the control
socket as freerad, if I am wrong someone please correct me.
As for debian packaging, i am building my debs from the freeradius source,
indeed. I may be wrong, may I had for a short time radmin working as
non-root in 2.1.12.
radius2:~$ apt-cache policy freeradius
*** 3.0.7+git 0
