Fedora IMAP problem
 
Hi,

I'm using the Fedora Core 4 Perfect setup guide and have run into a snag.

The problem is in the Postfix With SMTP-AUTH And TLS section.

When running the: apt-get install cyrus-sasl cyrus-sasl-devel....etc

I receive the error:
E: Couldn't find package imap

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
j

further to my previous message
 
I just wanted to add that I have tried:

apt-cache search imap
apt-cache search imapd
apt-cache search imap server

and the only imap server that was listed was dovecot.

There were applications/services that implement imap listed as well.

Am I missing something totally obvious?

Thanks for the help.

Please check your /etc/apt/sources list if these repositories are in this file:

rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/4/i386 core updates freshrpms
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/4/i386 tupdates
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/1/i386 core updates freshrpms

Then run:

apt-get update

to update the apt database.

Yes, you must have the line
Code:

rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/1/i386 core updates freshrpms
in /etc/apt/sources.list! This is not an error in the tutorial!

till and falko,

Thanks for the replies, that did it. I had a typo in my sources.list file. I was missing something totally obvious!! My bad.

falko - I wasn't implying that there was an error in the tutorial, I'm sorry if you took it that way. Thanks for the great howto.

I didn't take it that way! :) It's just that many people wonder why they should use a repository for Fedora 1 in a tutorial for Fedora 4 - they think it's a bug and leave that line out. :(
