Description Breno 2019-09-23 14:00:11 UTC

I would like to ask a build of opendkim for EPEL 8.

Would you mind requesting the branches and build them?

It would be very nice if you could also include the --with-lua option.

Thank you very much.

- Breno

Comment 1 Breno 2019-10-02 13:14:16 UTC
FYI, adding the --with-lua option may require a patch in the source in order to fix lua_load and lua_dump.
it seems pretty straightforward, though.

Comment 2 robert.maerz 2019-10-19 20:53:03 UTC
I want to request opendkim to be build for EPEL8 as well, please.

Comment 10 Frédéric Nass 2019-12-09 07:44:49 UTC

I believe we're missing opendbx and opendbx-devel. I installed opendbx and opendbx-devel from epel7 repository and could build opendkim 2.11.

1. Install these packages from RHEL8 repositories:

dnf install libdb-devel libmemcached-devel libtool openldap-devel sendmail-devel rpmdevtools make

2. Add epel7 repository to RHEL8:

vim /etc/yum.repos.d/epel7.repo

name=Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 7 - x86_64

name=Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 7 - x86_64 - Debug

name=Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 7 - x86_64 - Source

3. Add the repository key

wget -O /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-EPEL-7 https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/RPM-GPG-KEY-EPEL-7

4. Install opendbx and opendbx-devel

dnf install opendbx opendbx-devel --enablerepo=epel7

5. Get opendkim sources from epel7:

wget http://download-ib01.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/SRPMS/Packages/o/opendkim-2.11.0-0.1.el7.src.rpm
rpm -ivh opendkim-2.11.0-0.1.el7.src.rpm

6. Configure rpmdev or whatever that does...


7. Build opendkim from the sources:

rpmbuild -bb ~/rpmbuild/SPECS/opendkim.spec

This comes from my .zsh_history so I'm not sure to have all the steps here.

Thanks Federic your instructions worked wonderfully. Hoping to eventually see EPEL 8 sporting opendkimm packages but for now this will have to make do.

Comment 12 pina 2019-12-15 10:51:50 UTC
I also want to request opendkim to be build for EPEL8 as well.

Comment 13 Roger T 2019-12-24 00:25:05 UTC

Comment 14 Trevor Hemsley 2019-12-28 13:41:10 UTC
Just to point out that installing EPEL 7 on RHEL/CentOS 8 is the wrong thing to do. There should be no ".el7." packages installed on a RHEL/CentOS 8 system at all.

You should be downloading those missing package SRPMs and rebuilding those for el8 and adding them to an intermediate repo to be used for the opendkim build. 

The EPEL 7 opendbx SRPM does not build cleanly on CentOS 8 (missing sqlite2 packages) but the Fedora 30 one does, so that is the one that should be used. Downloading opendbx-1.4.6-20.fc30.src.rpm and feeding that into `mock --rebuild opendbx-1.4.6-20.fc30.src.rpm` generates various packages and adding those to the local yum repo used by mock lets me build opendkim-2.11.0-0.1.el8.x86_64.rpm cleanly and correctly for el8. It also works for the latest Fedora 30 SRPM opendkim-2.11.0-0.8.fc30.src.rpm which is probably a better thing to use rather than the EPEL 7 version.

Comment 15 kazakevichilya 2020-01-03 15:07:47 UTC
+1 for this issue. How can I run my MTA without of dkim?

Comment 16 Joe Pitt 2020-01-05 21:53:09 UTC

Not currently possible to build a sane mail server on 8 without Postgrey, OpenDKIM and OpenDMARC

Comment 17 Breno 2020-01-08 22:19:48 UTC

I hope I can help, I forked both opendkim[1] and opendbx[2] in src.fedoraproject.org and built them.
I performed some tests here, especially using the lua option, and seems to be working correctly.

They can be tested with the copr[3] mirror I've set.

I hope it helps somehow.

As I am in the packager group, feel free to add me as co-maintainer, if you feel like so.

Please let me know if you need anything.

Ps: I add a note in the opendbx ticket as well.

Comment 20 Breno 2020-01-15 14:30:32 UTC
Dear maintainer, i think i asked it before, would it be possible to build it with the --with-lua option?

Comment 21 Vasiliy Glazov 2020-01-15 17:28:20 UTC
I am still not maintainer. I just built it for epel8.
Next build I will try with lua.

Comment 22 Breno 2020-01-15 18:14:32 UTC
Hi Vasiliy,

Sure, thanks for that.
Feel free to add me as co-maitainer if you feel like so or if you need more hands.

This package has changed maintainer in the Fedora.
Reassigning to the new maintainer of this component.

Comment 24 jpchap 2020-02-11 08:21:57 UTC

OpenDmarc and OpenDkim are missing to update any public Mta in CentOS 8.

Thank for all

Comment 25 Dimitris 2020-02-12 14:26:42 UTC
The packages have been frozen for the past 19 days or so, and nobody has pushed them to stable:
