    Hi folks,

    CentOS 4.4 x86_64

    I followed;
    Virtual Users With Postfix, PostfixAdmin, Courier, Mailscanner, ClamAV On CentOS
    http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual_users_postfix_courier_mailscanner_clamav_centos

    and was stuck on;
    [vmail@localhost root]$ sudo yum install libtool postgresql-devel gdbm-devel pam-devel expect openldap-devel
    Code:
    
    We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
    Administrator. It usually boils down to these two things:
    
            #1) Respect the privacy of others.
            #2) Think before you type.
    
    Password:
    
    I don't know the password. What shall I enter here.

    I looked around "man visudo" and can't figure out how to add;
    Code:
    User_Alias ADMIN = satimis
    
    ADMIN ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD : ALL 
    Pls advise. TIA

    Hi folks,

    I solved the password problem by re-editing /etc/sudoers as follows
    Code:
    vmail ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
    
    Still encountered following problem;

    [vmail@localhost satimi]$ sudo yum install libtool postgresql-devel gdbm-devel pam-devel expect openldap-devel

    Code:
    yum install postgresql postgresql-devel
    ?

    Folks on postgresql advised me either complain to CentOS or download the packages on their website to proceed.

    Now I have following packages download on their/mirror sites:-
    Code:
    1)
    ftp://ftp.is.postgresql.org/pub/postgresql/binary/v7.4.16/linux/rpms/fedora/fedora-core-6-x86_64
    Download following postgresql packages (FC6);
    postgresql-7.4.16-1PGDG.x86_64.rpm
    postgresql-devel-7.4.16-1PGDG.x86_64.rpm
    postgresql-server-7.4.16-1PGDG.x86_64.rpm
    
    published on 02.08.2007
    
    2)
    ftp://ftp.postgresql.org/postgresql/binary/v7.4.16/linux/rpms/redhat/rhel-es-4-x86_64
    Download following postgresql packages (RH)
    postgresql-7.4.16-1PGDG.x86_64.rpm
    postgresql-devel-7.4.16-1PGDG.x86_64.rpm
    postgresql-server-7.4.16-1PGDG.x86_64.rpm
    
    published on 02.06.2007
    
    I hesitate which of them will be the right packages for me. (I suppose "rhel-es-4-x86_64" packages will be more appropriate)

    Secondly I don't know whether I have to run;
    1)
    # yum groupremove postgresql

    OR

    2)
    # yum remove postgresql

    I have been turning around here for 2 days. I got no advice on CentOS 4 forum.

    It seems your package database is really messed up. Maybe you should try a clean reinstall...

    OK. I started already, erasing the complete HD and following following howto to install CentSO 4.4 x86_64;

    http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_centos_4.4

    I encountered some problems during installing CentOS 4.4. I'll post all problems here under a new topic after finish.

    Tks.

    Hate to bump and old thread, but you've installed the RPMForge (or Dag) repository for CentOS 5/RHEL 5, rather than CentOS 4/RHEL 4.

    A clean install would be best, but you could edit out your repository list and enter in the correct version instead if you didn't want to reinstall.

    Hi aogo,

    This OS has been erased. A clean new installation has been made. This thread has been replaced with another thread;

    http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11964

    But still I can't complete the installation as described in the howto.
