Heh, OK. You asked for it.
I downloaded, untarred, made, and made-installed Postifx 2.5.1. I didn't
_see_ any errors in the make part, though in all that verbiage it might have
been hard to spot.
No complaints from the "make install" part, either.
So ... I guess it's installed. It even sends mail out to the internet. It
won't send local mail, though, claiming the alias db is unavailable.
Now, my first question ... I don't see a start-up script or anything else in
/etc/init.d that will start it. "grep /etc postfix" shows nada, as do
grepping /etc/rc.d and /etc/init.d. Am I missing something, or does
it use some magical start-up method I don't know about? I'm perfectly
capable of writing something that will "/usr/sbin/sendmail start" but if
it's already going to start ....
