    Hi guys,
    I am facing problem in postfix. I am using centos5.2.My postfix was running well but some strange problem it failed today.
    after that I wanted to restart postfix service , it does not restrat. But the postfix process is found in the process list( take memory and cpu ). Then i want to reinstall the postfix.The progress bar show it completed but not showing the completed message. I wait long time for the completion message but not display it and not return to command promt.

    When I cancel the command( ctrl+c) then the following error message is displayed:

    error: %post(postfix-2.3.3-2.1.el5_2.x86_64) scriptlet failed, signal 2

    For your information this is the process of installation:

    yum install postfix
    Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
    Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
    * base:
    * updates:
    * addons:

    Installing: postfix ######################### [1/1]
    error: %post(postfix-2.3.3-2.1.el5_2.x86_64) scriptlet failed, signal 2

    Then I have update yum and try again but same result.
    Some guys said to remove postfix first then install postfix rpm by rpm command but the result is same.

    After thr error message The postfix is found in the process list but
    service postfix start failed

    How can I get ride from the problem.
    thx in advance.

    Thx for your reply.
    No error message in the mail log.
    And there is no entry in the yum.log
    any idea.

    Hm... How much hard drive space is left on your system? What's the output of
    df -h
