Question Postfix's newaliases-command not working


Hi,

I was already writing a question here about the same thing but it worked once... Well, I have a aliases-file in /etc and in /etc/postfix. They're practically same. When I try to run newaliases to make the changes take effect, I get following error:

<clip="rm- and newaliases output">
root@zeip:/etc >rm aliases.db
root@zeip:/etc >newaliases
postalias: fatal: open database /etc/aliases.db: Cannot allocate memory
root@zeip:/etc >newaliases
postalias: warning: removing zero-length database file: /etc/aliases.db
postalias: fatal: open database /etc/aliases.db: Cannot allocate memory
</clip>

Could anyone tell what's wrong?

PS. Sorry if this has already been asked here, I didn't find anything with a quick search.

Well, now it seems to work... Weird, it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't
