Comment 1 John Dennis 2005-04-27 18:31:25 UTC
Actually this was intentional, the error was in not properly documenting it
before the package hit the update channel, which will be immediately corrected
when the update announcement is sent out. Please refer to bug #156121 for an

Also, its more than deliver that moved, everything under /usr/lib64/cyrus-imapd
moved to /usr/lib/cyrus-imapd. The package is self-consistent. Only things
outside the package which reference package components might be affected, of
which deliver is best example (although I would encourage you to use lmtp
instead of deliver).

My appologies for catching you unaware with this change. It's already moved in
FC4 and if you were to upgrade you would run into the same issue. Correct
handling of multilib in has been an iterative process and there have been some
mistakes along the way, better to fix them then let them get entrenched.

Thanks for the feedback.

I've just tried lmtp (changed mailbox_transport = cyrus to mailbox_transport =
lmtp:unix:/var/lib/imap/socket/lmtp). In /var/log/messages I have:

and in /var/log/maillog:

Comment 3 John Dennis 2005-04-27 20:52:13 UTC
Hmm... that's not good :-)

lmtp between cyrus and postfix is known to work on i386, I assume you are
running this on x86_64. (John scratches his head and wonders if this is a 64bit
only problem)

Can you please tell me a few things:

1) The output of rpm -q postfix

2) The value of the lmtp entry in /etc/cyrus.conf (or just attach the file).

Comment 4 Ian Williams 2005-04-27 22:00:06 UTC
Imagine my surprise: rpm -q postfix reports postfix is not installed!

cat /etc/webmin/postfix/version reports 2.1.5

I have not install postfix from anywhere else. Anyway I've reinstalled postfix
over the top and now lmtp works. There must have been a problem with the
original installation that I did not spot.

Thanks for your help.
