contents of usr/lib/sasl2


hey everyone

im trying to get smtp auth working with my email[centos,postfix,dovecot], and ive looked through a couple of tutorials for doing this, and all seem to use a smtpd.conf in usr/lib/sasl2.

although i do NOT have any smtpd.conf file in that directory. i went ahead and created it myself, but when i do, it causes postfix to crash ><

currently, this is what resides in usr/lib/sasl2 :

Code:
libntlm.la  libntlm.so  libntlm.so.2  libntlm.so.2.0.19
any ideas ? are there supposed to be more files here?

There should be more files in there. You need to install cyrus-sasl to get them.

Regards

Hi bathory, i apologize for the delay in responding.

Im am 99.9% sure i had installed cyrus-sasl via 'yum install cyrus-sasl' or what it might be.

Whenever I try to do yum install etc, it says 'nothing to do'.

Is there a way to uninstall and then reinstall?

Thanks again

All I know about rpm based distros is that you rnn "rpm -e" to uninstall, "rpm -i" to install and "rpm -u" to upgrade a package. Before uninstalling search for "libsasl2.so" in your disk to see if it's installed in a different place.

Hi

you have to install cyrus-sasl- packages. the daemon is saslauthd.

I think, in RHEL 4 the file is smtpd.conf, but in RHEL5 the file is Sendmail.conf(not sure about this)

It seems I might have the case of files scattered everwhere ><

So, I searched for "libsasl2.so", and got back:

Code:
 /usr/lib/libsasl2.so
I then searched for "Sendmail.conf" and got:

Code:
 /usr/lib/sasl2_orig/Sendmail.conf

The contents of /sasl2_orig/ are the following:

Code:
Sendmail.conf           libdigestmd5.so         libplain.la
Sendmail.conf~          libdigestmd5.so.2       libplain.so
libanonymous.la         libdigestmd5.so.2.0.19  libplain.so.2
libanonymous.so         libgssapiv2.la          libplain.so.2.0.19
libanonymous.so.2       libgssapiv2.so          libsasldb.la
libanonymous.so.2.0.19  libgssapiv2.so.2        libsasldb.so
libcrammd5.la           libgssapiv2.so.2.0.19   libsasldb.so.2
libcrammd5.so           liblogin.la             libsasldb.so.2.0.19
libcrammd5.so.2         liblogin.so             smtpd.conf
libcrammd5.so.2.0.19    liblogin.so.2           smtpd.conf~
libdigestmd5.la         liblogin.so.2.0.19

What I understand from this is, the sasl2 lib files that are supposed to be in /usr/lib/sasl2/ are actually in /usr/lib/ correct? Is this the problem?

It's not a problem. All you have to do is to change the references from /usr/lib/sasl2 to /usr/lib in the tutorial you've followed. Or you can create a symlink from /usr/lib to /usr/lib/sasl2.

Just a comment: postfix >= 2.3 can authenticate against dovecot-auth, so you don't need to bring in cyrus.
