Default SASL Problem

Cartman:/etc# /etc/init.d/saslauthd start
/etc/init.d/saslauthd: line 1: s: command not found

which is followed by...... the contents of /etc/init.d/saslauthd

#!/bin/sh -e

NAME=saslauthd
DAEMON="/usr/sbin/${NAME}"
DESC="SASL Authentication Daemon"
DEFAULTS=/etc/default/saslauthd
PWDIR="/var/spool/postfix/var/run/${NAME}"
PIDFILE="${PWDIR}/saslauthd.pid"
dir="root sasl 755 ${PWDIR}"

createdir() {
# $1 = user
# $2 = group
# $3 = permissions (octal)
# $4 = path to directory
[ -d "$4" ] || mkdir -p "$4"
chown -c -h "$1:$2" "$4"
chmod -c "$3" "$4"
}

test -f "${DAEMON}" || exit 0

# Source defaults file; edit that file to configure this script.
if [ -e "${DEFAULTS}" ]; then
. "${DEFAULTS}"
fi

# If we're not to start the daemon, simply exit
if [ "${START}" != "yes" ]; then
exit 0
fi

# If we have no mechanisms defined
if [ "x${MECHANISMS}" = "x" ]; then
echo "You need to configure ${DEFAULTS} with mechanisms to be used"
exit 0
fi

# Add our mechanimsms with the necessary flag
PARAMS="${PARAMS} -a ${MECHANISMS}"

START="--start --quiet --pidfile ${PIDFILE} --startas ${DAEMON} --name ${NAME} -- ${PARAMS}"

# Consider our options
case "${1}" in
start)
echo -n "Starting ${DESC}: "
#dir=`dpkg-statoverride --list $PWDIR`
test -z "$dir" || createdir $dir
if start-stop-daemon ${START} >/dev/null 2>&1 ; then
echo "${NAME}."
else
if start-stop-daemon --test ${START} >/dev/null 2>&1; then
echo "(failed)."
exit 1
else
echo "${DAEMON} already running."
exit 0
fi
fi
;;
stop)
echo -n "Stopping ${DESC}: "
if start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --pidfile "${PIDFILE}" \
--startas ${DAEMON} --retry 10 --name ${NAME} \
>/dev/null 2>&1 ; then
echo "${NAME}."
else
if start-stop-daemon --test ${START} >/dev/null 2>&1; then
echo "(not running)."
exit 0
else
echo "(failed)."
exit 1
fi
fi
;;
restart|force-reload)
$0 stop
exec $0 start
;;
*)
echo "Usage: /etc/init.d/${NAME} {start|stop|restart|force-reload}" >&2
exit 1
;;
esac

exit 0


I have worked on it for 2 hours and can not get the saslauthd to start and work correctly. This is a Debian (3.1) sarge install.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Jeffrey Kroll

Is the file /etc/init.d/saslauthd executable?

Try a chmod +x /etc/init.d/saslauthd

You have to save the file with Unix linebreaks, not Windows linebreaks! This is very important! So if you create the file on a Windows machine and then transfer it to your Linux box, make sure you use an editor that allows to save the file with Unix linebreaks!
