Question Starting Postfix: execvp: No such file or directory


Hi everyone,

I've been trying to get Postfix to work on a new machine I just built. I'm running Fedora Core 1. I'm also following this guide for a relay server setup:

http://www.freespamfilter.org/fc1config.html

After installing Postfix, I've noticed the following error when booting up:

Code:
Starting Postfix: execvp: No such file or directory
I can't seem to figure out why this error is happening. Will it break Postfix? When I manually start Postfix by typing "postfix start", it seems to start fine.

I've done some digging and have heard it may be related to my master.cf configuration file. It looks correct according to the guide I mentioned above. Here it is for reference:

Code:

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I want to make sure Postfix is fully working before installing SpamAssassin and the like.

Thanks,
