Postfix: postfix: fatal: chdir(/usr/libexec/postfix)
 
Installed Postfix.
Configured the /etc/postfix/main.cf file
/etc/init.d/postfix restart
Code:

* Stopping Postfix Mail Transport Agent postfix                        [ OK ]
 * Starting Postfix Mail Transport Agent postfix                                postfix: fatal: chdir(/usr/libexec/postfix): No such file or directory
                                                                        [fail]

What the heck is this error?

Are you running postfix chroot?

/usr/libexec/postfix is the directory where postfix internal commands reside.

All I did was install Postfix using aptitude install postfix
Edited my /etc/postfix/main.cf file (that's standard)
And then I tried to start Postfix using: sudo /etc/init.d/postfix start

That's when I got that error. What does that mean? Never had this problem on my CentOS machines.
