    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. :(
