Description Karl O. Pinc 2000-07-26 20:13:05 UTC
Now that redhat is shipping with openldap, we really, really want ldap
support in our MTA.  (We're moving all our e-mail authentication and
aliases into ldap, "closing" the server to logins, and distributing the
authentication to multiple boxes -- web server, radius remote access, imap,

Also, please add /usr/libexec/postfix/nqmgr to the %files section.  (That's
not in this patch.)

Here's a patch to the RawHide postfix-20000531-3 rpm spec file that builds
in ldap support.

(I'm not _certain_ that it works chrooted, as you have configured.  We're
not chrooting so the smtp server can reject invalid addresses, to give our
smtp users instant feedback and keep from sending them bounced mail.)

(If you don't want to build ldap support how about building a sub-package
that has it?)

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-08-03 10:03:04 UTC
We don't want the additional dependency because most users don't use LDAP for
mail ATM, and for 7.0, we're well beyond the point where new packages can be
So what I've done for now is adding a %define LDAP option to the source RPM and
%if %{LDAP}'ing the changes, so adding the option with a rebuild comes down to
editing one line in the spec file.
