postfix and cyrus-imapd fail on fedora core 2


fixed the problem. reloaded, and went with another option.

I have been going through the postfix-cyrus-web-wyradm-howto that is put out by LUC de LOUW. I have gotten to the point that i am restarting services and postfix doesn't reatart. Her is an excerpt from the log file:

Oct 24 18:44:07 japan postfix/postfix-script: starting the Postfix mail system
Oct 24 18:44:07 japan postfix/master[3475]: daemon started -- version 2.0.18
Oct 24 18:46:08 japan master[3643]: invalid option name on line 28 of configuration file
Oct 24 18:46:08 japan master[3643]: exiting


here is my master.cf file:

[root@japan postfix]# cat master.cf
#
# Postfix master process configuration file. Each logical line
# describes how a Postfix daemon program should be run.
#
# A logical line starts with non-whitespace, non-comment text.
# Empty lines and whitespace-only lines are ignored, as are comment
# lines whose first non-whitespace character is a `#'.
# A line that starts with whitespace continues a logical line.
#
# The fields that make up each line are described below. A "-" field
# value requests that a default value be used for that field.
#
# Service: any name that is valid for the specified transport type
# (the next field). With INET transports, a service is specified as
# hostort. The host part (and colon) may be omitted. Either host
# or port may be given in symbolic form or in numeric form. Examples
# for the SMTP server: localhost:smtp receives mail via the loopback
# interface only; 10025 receives mail on port 10025.
#
# Transport type: "inet" for Internet sockets, "unix" for UNIX-domain
# sockets, "fifo" for named pipes.
#
# Private: whether or not access is restricted to the mail system.
# Default is private service. Internet (inet) sockets can't be private.
#
# Unprivileged: whether the service runs with root privileges or as
# the owner of the Postfix system (the owner name is controlled by the
# mail_owner configuration variable in the main.cf file). Only the
# pipe, virtual and local delivery daemons require privileges.
#
# Chroot: whether or not the service runs chrooted to the mail queue
# directory (pathname is controlled by the queue_directory configuration
# variable in the main.cf file). Presently, all Postfix daemons can run
# chrooted, except for the pipe, virtual and local delivery daemons.
# The proxymap server can run chrooted, but doing so defeats most of
# the purpose of having that service in the first place.
# The files in the examples/chroot-setup subdirectory describe how
# to set up a Postfix chroot environment for your type of machine.
#
# Wakeup time: automatically wake up the named service after the
# specified number of seconds. A ? at the end of the wakeup time
# field requests that wake up events be sent only to services that
# are actually being used. Specify 0 for no wakeup. Presently, only
# the pickup, queue manager and flush daemons need a wakeup timer.
#
# Max procs: the maximum number of processes that may execute this
# service simultaneously. Default is to use a globally configurable
# limit (the default_process_limit configuration parameter in main.cf).
# Specify 0 for no process count limit.
#
# Command + args: the command to be executed. The command name is
# relative to the Postfix program directory (pathname is controlled by
# the daemon_directory configuration variable). Adding one or more
# -v options turns on verbose logging for that service; adding a -D
# option enables symbolic debugging (see the debugger_command variable
# in the main.cf configuration file). See individual command man pages
# for specific command-line options, if any.
#
# In order to use the "uucp" message tranport below, set up entries
# in the transport table.
#
# In order to use the "cyrus" message transport below, configure it
# in main.cf as the mailbox_transport.
#
# SPECIFY ONLY PROGRAMS THAT ARE WRITTEN TO RUN AS POSTFIX DAEMONS.
# ALL DAEMONS SPECIFIED HERE MUST SPEAK A POSTFIX-INTERNAL PROTOCOL.
#
# DO NOT SHARE THE POSTFIX QUEUE BETWEEN MULTIPLE POSTFIX INSTANCES.

here is my main.cf file:

[root@japan postfix]# cat main.cf | more
# Global Postfix configuration file. This file lists only a subset
# of all 300+ parameters. See the sample-xxx.cf files for a full list.
#
# The general format is lines with parameter = value pairs. Lines
# that begin with whitespace continue the previous line. A value can
# contain references to other $names or ${name}s.
#
# NOTE - CHANGE NO MORE THAN 2-3 PARAMETERS AT A TIME, AND TEST IF
# POSTFIX STILL WORKS AFTER EVERY CHANGE.


# LOCAL PATHNAME INFORMATION
#
# The queue_directory specifies the location of the Postfix queue.
# This is also the root directory of Postfix daemons that run chrooted.
# See the files in examples/chroot-setup for setting up Postfix chroot
# environments on different UNIX systems.
#
queue_directory = /var/spool/postfix

# The command_directory parameter specifies the location of all
# postXXX commands.
#
command_directory = /usr/sbin

# The daemon_directory parameter specifies the location of all Postfix
# daemon programs (i.e. programs listed in the master.cf file). This
# directory must be owned by root.
#
daemon_directory = /usr/libexec/postfix

# QUEUE AND PROCESS OWNERSHIP
#
# The mail_owner parameter specifies the owner of the Postfix queue
# and of most Postfix daemon processes. Specify the name of a user
# account THAT DOES NOT SHARE ITS USER OR GROUP ID WITH OTHER ACCOUNTS
# AND THAT OWNS NO OTHER FILES OR PROCESSES ON THE SYSTEM. In
# particular, don't specify nobody or daemon. PLEASE USE A DEDICATED
# USER.
#
mail_owner = postfix



# INTERNET HOST AND DOMAIN NAMES
#
# The myhostname parameter specifies the internet hostname of this
# mail system. The default is to use the fully-qualified domain name
# from gethostname(). $myhostname is used as a default value for many
# other configuration parameters.
#
#myhostname = host.domain.tld
#myhostname = virtual.domain.tld

# The mydomain parameter specifies the local internet domain name.
# The default is to use $myhostname minus the first component.
# $mydomain is used as a default value for many other configuration

# $mydomain is used as a default value for many other configuration
# parameters.
#
mydomain = kylewingate.org

# SENDING MAIL
#
# The myorigin parameter specifies the domain that locally-posted
# mail appears to come from. The default is to append $myhostname,
# which is fine for small sites. If you run a domain with multiple
# machines, you should (1) change this to $mydomain and (2) set up
# a domain-wide alias database that aliases each user to
# user@that.users.mailhost.
#
# For the sake of consistency between sender and recipient addresses,
# myorigin also specifies the default domain name that is appended
# to recipient addresses that have no @domain part.
#
#myorigin = $myhostname
myorigin = $mydomain

# RECEIVING MAIL

# The inet_interfaces parameter specifies the network interface
# addresses that this mail system receives mail on. By default,
# the software claims all active interfaces on the machine. The
# parameter also controls delivery of mail to user@[ip.address].
#
# See also the proxy_interfaces parameter, for network addresses that
# are forwarded to us via a proxy or network address translator.
#
# Note: you need to stop/start Postfix when this parameter changes.
#
inet_interfaces = all
#inet_interfaces = $myhostname
#inet_interfaces = $myhostname, localhost
#inet_interfaces = localhost

# Specify a list of host or domain names, /file/name or type:table
# patterns, separated by commas and/or whitespace. A /file/name
# pattern is replaced by its contents; a type:table is matched when
# a name matches a lookup key (the right-hand side is ignored).
# Continue long lines by starting the next line with whitespace.
#
# DO NOT LIST RELAY DESTINATIONS IN MYDESTINATION.
# SPECIFY RELAY DESTINATIONS IN RELAY_DOMAINS.
#
# See also below, section "REJECTING MAIL FOR UNKNOWN LOCAL USERS".
#
#mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain
#mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain $mydomain
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, $mydomain,
mail.$mydomain, www.$mydomain, ftp.$mydomain


# The unknown_local_recipient_reject_code specifies the SMTP server
# response code when a recipient domain matches $mydestination or
# $inet_interfaces, while $local_recipient_maps is non-empty and the
# recipient address or address local-part is not found.
#
# The default setting is 550 (reject mail) but it is safer to start
# with 450 (try again later) until you are certain that your
# local_recipient_maps settings are OK.
#
#unknown_local_recipient_reject_code = 550
unknown_local_recipient_reject_code = 450

# TRUST AND RELAY CONTROL

# The mynetworks parameter specifies the list of "trusted" SMTP
# clients that have more privileges than "strangers".
#
# In particular, "trusted" SMTP clients are allowed to relay mail
# through Postfix. See the smtpd_recipient_restrictions parameter
# in file sample-smtpd.cf.
#
# You can specify the list of "trusted" network addresses by hand
# or you can let Postfix do it for you (which is the default).
#
# By default (mynetworks_style = subnet), Postfix "trusts" SMTP
# clients in the same IP subnetworks as the local machine.
# On Linux, this does works correctly only with interfaces specified
# with the "ifconfig" command.
#
# Specify "mynetworks_style = class" when Postfix should "trust" SMTP
# clients in the same IP class A/B/C networks as the local machine.
# Don't do this with a dialup site - it would cause Postfix to "trust"
# your entire provider's network. Instead, specify an explicit
# mynetworks list by hand, as described below.
#
# Specify "mynetworks_style = host" when Postfix should "trust"
# only the local machine.
#
mynetworks_style = class
mynetworks_style = subnet
mynetworks_style = host

# Alternatively, you can specify the mynetworks list by hand, in
# which case Postfix ignores the mynetworks_style setting.
#
# Specify an explicit list of network/netmask patterns, where the
# mask specifies the number of bits in the network part of a host
# address.
#
# You can also specify the absolute pathname of a pattern file instead
# of listing the patterns here. Specify type:table for table-based lookups
# (the value on the table right-hand side is not used).
#
mynetworks = 10.0.0.0/24, 127.0.0.0/24, 192.168.160.0/24
#mynetworks = $config_directory/mynetworks
#mynetworks = hash:/etc/postfix/network_table

# ALIAS DATABASE
#
# The alias_maps parameter specifies the list of alias databases used
# by the local delivery agent. The default list is system dependent.
#
# On systems with NIS, the default is to search the local alias
# database, then the NIS alias database. See aliases(5) for syntax
# details.
#
# If you change the alias database, run "postalias /etc/aliases" (or
# wherever your system stores the mail alias file), or simply run
# "newaliases" to build the necessary DBM or DB file.
#
# It will take a minute or so before changes become visible. Use
# "postfix reload" to eliminate the delay.
#
#alias_maps = dbm:/etc/aliases
alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/aliases
#alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases, nis:mail.aliases
#alias_maps = netinfo:/aliases


# The mailbox_transport specifies the optional transport in master.cf
# to use after processing aliases and .forward files. This parameter
# has precedence over the mailbox_command, fallback_transport and
# luser_relay parameters.
#
# Specify a string of the form transport:nexthop, where transport is
# the name of a mail delivery transport defined in master.cf. The
# :nexthop part is optional. For more details see the sample transport
# configuration file.
#
# NOTE: if you use this feature for accounts not in the UNIX password
# file, then you must update the "local_recipient_maps" setting in
# the main.cf file, otherwise the SMTP server will reject mail for
# non-UNIX accounts with "User unknown in local recipient table".
#
#mailbox_transport = lmtp:unix:/file/name
mailbox_transport = cyrus

# DEBUGGING CONTROL
#
# The debug_peer_level parameter specifies the increment in verbose
# logging level when an SMTP client or server host name or address
# matches a pattern in the debug_peer_list parameter.
#
debug_peer_level = 2

# The debug_peer_list parameter specifies an optional list of domain
# or network patterns, /file/name patterns or type:name tables. When
# an SMTP client or server host name or address matches a pattern,
# increase the verbose logging level by the amount specified in the
# debug_peer_level parameter.
#
#debug_peer_list = 127.0.0.1
#debug_peer_list = some.domain

# The debugger_command specifies the external command that is executed
# when a Postfix daemon program is run with the -D option.
#
# Use "command .. & sleep 5" so that the debugger can attach before
# the process marches on. If you use an X-based debugger, be sure to
# set up your XAUTHORITY environment variable before starting Postfix.
#
debugger_command =
PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin
xxgdb $daemon_directory/$process_name $process_id & sleep 5

# If you don't have X installed on the Postfix machine, try:
# debugger_command =
# PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin; export PATH; (echo cont;
# echo where) | gdb $daemon_directory/$process_name $process_id 2>&1
# >$config_directory/$process_name.$process_id.log & sleep 5

# INSTALL-TIME CONFIGURATION INFORMATION
#
# The following parameters are used when installing a new Postfix version.
#
# sendmail_path: The full pathname of the Postfix sendmail command.
# This is the Sendmail-compatible mail posting interface.
#

# newaliases_path: The full pathname of the Postfix newaliases command.
# This is the Sendmail-compatible command to build alias databases.

# mailq_path: The full pathname of the Postfix mailq command. This
# is the Sendmail-compatible mail queue listing command.
#
mailq_path = /usr/bin/mailq.postfix

# setgid_group: The group for mail submission and queue management
# commands. This must be a group name with a numerical group ID that
# is not shared with other accounts, not even with the Postfix account.
#
setgid_group = postdrop

# manpage_directory: The location of the Postfix on-line manual pages.

Well, nothing jumps out at ya as being horribly wrong. Except the setting for "mydestination" might contain an error. (Or it would be an LQ formatting quirk.) Make sure there's at least one space at the beginning of the continuation line(s).

What does "postfix check" return?
