Description W. Michael Petullo 2008-07-14 01:42:11 UTC
Description of problem:
Postfix provides support for the MySQL database. It would be nice if it
supported both MySQL and Postgresql using dynamically loadable modules, packaged
separately. The Debian project ships a patch that provides this feature. See

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
% ldd /usr/sbin/postfix
Actual results:
libmysqlclient.so.15 => /usr/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.so.15 (0x1fd85000)

Expected results:
Core binaries are not linked against MySQL. MySQL support could be implemented
in a loadable module that is packaged separately.

Comment 1 Randy Yates 2010-08-24 01:53:33 UTC
While Michael's proposal is more elegant, I offer a (obvious) second approach: provide two packages: postfix-mysql and postfix-pqsql. It is VERY frustrating to have absolutely no postgresql support for postfix under fedora (forcing us to build from source).

Comment 2 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2011-02-25 09:10:12 UTC
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 3 Jaroslav Škarvada 2016-07-20 13:41:37 UTC
AFAIK this feature got upstreamed and we already have it in Fedora, thus closing.
