main.cf inet_protocols hackery introduces invalid syntax
Last modified: 2008-03-12 08:48:22 EDT
Description of problem:
postfix.spec (2.5.1-1) puts in:
321 inet_protocols = all (enable IPv4, and IPv6 if supported)
to main.cf during %install. See postconf(5):
Empty lines and whitespace-only lines are ignored, as are lines whose first
non-whitespace character is a #
So, per syntax, comments must be standalone and must have #. This fails on both
counts; it's invalid syntax. Suggest replacing with:
# (enable IPv4, and IPv6 if supported)
inet_protocols = all
across two lines.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rpm-based distro
2. run rpm -i
3. profit? no, you can't profit, mail isn't working.
postfix: fatal: unknown inet_protocols value "(enable" in "all (enable
IPv4, and IPv6 if supported)"
some other issue that's causing 2.5.1-1 to not start clean on a virgin install
that I need to look into next
also affects 2.4.6 builds, not present postfix-2.3.3-2
Fixed in rawhide in package postfix-2.5.1-2.fc9.
