Description Zenon Mousmoulas 2003-04-06 14:20:10 UTC
Description of problem:
The spec file correctly handles separately building postfix with SASL 1 or 
SASL 2.

However, when building with SASL 2, it doesn't take into account that cyrus-
sasl packages in RHL provide both SASL version 1 and version 2 libraries and 
headers.

SASL 1 headers are installed in /usr/include.
SASL 2 headers are in /usr/include/sasl.

Therefore, when building with SASL 2, the spec must take care to add '-
I/usr/include/sasl' to the CCARGS environment variable prior to compiling 
postfix.

Otherwise postfix will start failing as soon as SASL is called by any 
component of the system, with the error message:

fatal: SASL per-connection security setup

To trigger this, add for example 'smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes' 
to /etc/postfix/main.cf and issue `service postfix reload'. Every new 
connection to the smtp service will fail and produce this error msg.

I'm attaching a diff between the spec in the rawhide package and my own. It 
has further customizations/improvements, including a fix for this problem.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.0.6-2

How reproducible:
Always

Thank you for your fixes. Your modified spec file references new files and/or
patches, could you please attach those as well? In particular the sasl2 config
file, the other new files would be helpful as well. Thank you.

Comment 3 Zenon Mousmoulas 2003-04-07 20:21:18 UTC
Oh yes I'm sorry, I didn't think about that.

Please note, all of these patches are taken from Simon J. Mudd's current 
postfix srpm package.
The only other file is my own postfix-smtpd-sasl2.conf, which is just like 
postfix-smtpd.conf, but adjusted to defaults suitable for use with SASL 2. A 
simple hack :)

I've fixed the sasl include directory (in postfix-2.0.11).
