CentOS Linux 6.0


Hi i just uppgraded to Centos 6. Linux 2.6.32-71.29.1.el6.i686 on i686
now im getting some troubble whit this file:
wget https://sourceforge.net/projects/cou...r.bz2/download
i create a downloads directory and download the source file and--
mkdir $HOME/downloads
cd $HOME/downloads
But when i try to build courier-authlib whit this comand:
#sudo rpmbuild -ta courier-authlib-0.63.0.tar.bz2
I get this:

[falko@server1 downloads]$ sudo rpmbuild -ta courier-authlib-0.63.0.tar.bz2
>>> /etc/sudoers: syntax error near line 90 <<<
sudo: parse error in /etc/sudoers near line 90
sudo: no valid sudoers sources found, quitting
You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root

as you can see the file i try to install is in my directory:
[falko@server1 downloads]$ ll
total 10520
-rw-rw-r--. 1 falko falko 2817119 Dec 30 2009 courier-authlib-0.63.0.tar.bz2
-rw-rw-r--. 1 falko falko 2817119 Dec 30 2009 courier-authlib-0.63.0.tar.bz2.1
-rw-rw-r--. 1 falko falko 3049553 May 23 12:58 courier-imap-4.9.3.tar.bz2
-rw-rw-r--. 1 falko falko 2082167 May 20 13:25 maildrop-2.5.4.tar.bz2

what can be the reason??

Geez ... for a start you don't want to be building packages as root, it's extremely easy to trash your system. Secondly, the problem is pretty straight forward, you're trying to run sudo and the error message says there's a syntax error in /etc/sudoers - so type 'visudo' and fix the error.

Hi

[falko@server1 downloads]$ visudo
visudo: /etc/sudoers: Permission denied
visudo: /etc/sudoers: Permission denied

So you se hmm cant get permission to that

sorry i just typed "exit" and then run visudo as root

I have to ask
what is it you are trying to do
from the first post it looks like you want to install some VERY VERY old and unsupported version of "courier-0.63.0 ( from 2009)"
The current is "courier-0.66.3.tar.bz2 "

and it looks like you are fallowing WHAT
bits and pieces of different "how to's" for different OS's

so
1)
Code:
wget https://sourceforge.net/projects/courier/files/authlib/0.63.0/courier-authlib-0.63.0.tar.bz2/download
WHY this very old tarbal ??????
the current is 66.3
2)
Quote:
mkdir $HOME/downloads
? WHY
cent already has a DEFAULT folder called "Downloads"
there was no need to make a second folder but with a lower case "d"
3)
Quote:
#sudo rpmbuild -ta courier-authlib-0.63.0.tar.bz2
?
sudo is not used by default on a red hat based distro
sudo is not set up by default on a red hat based distro
use " su " or "su -" on a red hat system

4)
using rpmbuild on a untared tarbal
and on an uncompiled untared tarbal
and one that is 3 years OUT OF DATE


so what is it you want to do
i have NO IDEA what

if you NEED to build the source
DL the current 66.3
untar it
( double click on it and let fileroller extract it ( just like on MS windows-- no different)
then READ the files README and INSTALL
make 100% sure you DID install gcc and autotools
with the groupinstall
Code:
su -
yum groupinstall "development Tools" "Development Libraries"
then run the configure script

RPM packages should be built as unprivileged user.
