    I am trying to set up dovecot 0.99 running in RHEL 4 and I get the following error after starting dovecot:
    "Auth process died too early - shutting down,
    child 3116 (auth) returned error 127
    localhost imap-login: fd_send(-1) failed: Broken pipe
    localhost pop3-login: fd_send(-1) failed: Broken pipe"

    The dovecot configuration file is as follows:

    protocols = pop3 pop3s imap imaps
    default_mail_env = mbox:/var/mail/%d/%n/:INDEX=/var/indexes/%d/%n
    client_workarounds = oe6-fetch-no-newmail outlook-idle outlook-pop3-no
    #pop3_uid1_format = %08Xu%08Xv
    #imap_client_workarounds = delay-newmail outlook-idle netscape-eoh
    #pop3_client_workarounds = outlook-no-nuls oe-ns-oeh
    login_dir = /var/run/dovecot-login
    login = imap
    login_executable = /usr/libexec/dovecot/imap-login
    login_user = dovecot
    login_process_size = 32
    login = pop3
    login_executable = /usr/libexec/dovecot/pop3-login
    max_mail_processes = 1024
    imap_executable = /usr/libexec/dovecot/imap
    imap_process_size = 256
    pop3_executable = /usr/libexec/dovecot/pop3
    pop3_process_size = 256
    auth = default
    auth_mechanisms = plain
    auth_userdb = passwd
    #auth_executable = /usr/libexec/dovecot/dovecot-auth
    #auth_process_size = 256
    #auth_user = root

    Any possible solution
