hi,
I downloaded the source for postfix .
while installing the postfix it giving certain error
make -f Makefile.in MAKELEVEL= Makefiles
(echo "# Do not edit -- this file documents how Postfix was built for your machine."; /bin/sh makedefs) >makedefs.tmp
No <db.h> include file found.
Install the appropriate db*-devel package first.
See the RELEASE_NOTES file for more information.
make: *** [Makefiles] Error 1
make: *** [Makefiles] Error 2


is it neccesary to install a dabase before installing this like mysql ?
thanks

first of all - what distri are you running and do you have a specific reason to build from source?

most distries have postfix already packaged for you.

well - i suggest you do the following:
apt-get update
apt-get install postfix
the installer will load a ncurses configuration frontent to help you
and also uninstall exim which is set as default.
and that is all you need to do
