Perfect Setup - Fedora Core 3 - saslauthd problem

    Hi.

    I read in one of Falko's posts somewhere that the Perfect Setup Fedora Core 3 is basically the same for Fedora Core 2. I have followed that and have got so far, but now I have encountered my first error.

    works fine.
    We then come to
    and I get an error,
    Code:
    error reading information on service imap: No such file or directory
    which is fine as Dovecot was installed instead of imap, so I change this to
    Code:
    chkconfig Dovecot on
    and it seems to be ok.
    all produce the same error.

    >>>>> Should I replace these lines with anything or just leave them out?

    All seem to work ok apart from
    which throws an error saying
    Code:
    could not read from startup_pipe
    If I just type
    Code:
    saslauthd start
    at the prompt I get an error telling me
    Code:
    no authentication method specified
    and list of options which seems to suggest that saslauthd is there somewhere ready to go but I'm just not giving it the right information. I tried
    Code:
    saslauthd -a pam
    which throws up the message:
    Code:
    saslauthd[22578] :detach_tty      : Cannot start saslauthd
    saslauthd[22578] :detach_tty      : could not read from startup_pipe
    
    Obviously I'm missing something here. Would be grateful if someone could help me out.

    Thanks in advance

    Leave them out.

    Did you do all the steps from http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_fedora_core_3_p4 ?

    What's in /usr/lib/sasl2/smtpd.conf?
    What's the output of
    Code:
    telnet localhost 25
    (this telnet thing is also described on http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_fedora_core_3_p4)?

    Looks ok so far. Please restart Postfix and try this
    Code:
    telnet localhost 25
    thing again.

    You seem to have sasl and sasl2 installed at the same time. Can you run this:

    Code:
    mv /usr/lib/sasl /usr/lib/sasl_orig
    ln -s /usr/lib/sasl2 /usr/lib/sasl
    and then restart Postfix and try this telnet thing again?

    Ok Falko - did that - results were:
    Code:

    That's the explanation why it doesn't work for you. You don't seem to have the correct Postfix package installed.
    What exactly did you do to install Postfix and saslauthd?

    Code:
    apt-get install cyrus-sasl cyrus-sasl-devel cyrus-sasl-gssapi cyrus-sasl-md5 cyrus-sasl-plain postfix dovecot
    When I ran this it told me I already had latest version of cyrus*

    How can I get rid of this problem please Falko?

    The server is a vps. Would I need to get my hosting company to do a rebuild? Hoping i don't need to as they are very slow at doing things.

    Ok. Just come across /etc/postfix/postfix.spec.sf which is as follows:

    Code:
    #
    # This file contains the following information:
    #
    # - configuration options used to build the installed postfix rpm
    #   - generated when the binary rpm was built
    #
    # - Postfix RPM build instructions
    #   - for upgrading the installed rpm with the same options
    #   - for building the rpm with other options
    #
    # 1. CONFIGURATION OPTIONS OF INSTALLED BINARY RPM
    #
    # Package built on: fedora-release-2-4 (fedora-2.0)
    
    POSTFIX_ALT_PRIO=30
    POSTFIX_CDB=0
    POSTFIX_DB=4
    POSTFIX_IPV6=0
    POSTFIX_LDAP=0
    POSTFIX_MYSQL=0
    POSTFIX_MYSQL_PATHS=0
    POSTFIX_MYSQL_REDHAT=0
    POSTFIX_PCRE=0
    POSTFIX_PGSQL=0
    [COLOR="Red"]POSTFIX_SASL=0[/COLOR]
    POSTFIX_SMTPD_MULTILINE_GREETING=1
    POSTFIX_SPF=0
    POSTFIX_TLS=1
    POSTFIX_VDA=0
    
    # export values to child processes
    export POSTFIX_MYSQL POSTFIX_MYSQL_PATHS POSTFIX_MYSQL_REDHAT  POSTFIX_LDAP POSTFIX_PCRE POSTFIX_PGSQL  POSTFIX_SASL POSTFIX_SPF POSTFIX_TLS POSTFIX_IPV6 POSTFIX_VDA  POSTFIX_SMTPD_MULTILINE_GREETING POSTFIX_DB POSTFIX_INCLUDE_DB  POSTFIX_CDB POSTFIX_ALT_PRIO
    
    # other options used in the build (but not explicitly changeable by the user) are:
    # - debug=0
    # - pcre_requires=pcre,
    # - requires_zlib=0,
    [COLOR="red"]# - sasl_library=cyrus-sasl-devel[/COLOR]
    # - tlsfix=0
    #
    # /etc/postfix/makedefs.out is also produced by the build and may be of
    # interest if you are building Postfix by hand.
    
    The file date is back in June 2005 which is before I got the vps, so I'm guessing it's put there at build time.

    Just guessing, but maybe
    Code:
    POSTFIX_SASL=0
    is the reason postfix didn't install with sasl support?

    If so, do I just change that to
    Code:
    POSTFIX_SASL=1
    and uncomment
    Code:
    # - sasl_library=cyrus-sasl-devel
    then re-install to get it to work as it should?

    Really appreciate all your help. Thanks
