OpenSlug 3.1beta and cyrus-sasl: saslpasswd2: generic failure
I am trying to install Cyrus imap on a fresh OpenSlug 3.1beta. I
followed the instructions on
http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/OpenSlug/MailServer. Several of the
packages were newer than the one mentioned in the HowTo, but I do not
think that this should be such a big deal.
When I tried to install cyrus-sasl I got the error:
Installing cyrus-sasl (2.1.19-r9) to root...
saslpasswd2: generic failure
chgrp: /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory
A closer look revealed, that cyrus-sasl had a problem to create the
saslpasswd2: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2
(creating the file /etc/sasldb2 is no problem and even if I do a chmod
777 on this file the installation of cyrus-sasl fails with this error)
I found several similar problem descriptions on the net, but
unfortunately no answers.
Do you think it might be possible to change the sasl_pwcheck_method
from sasldb2 to shadow, so that I would use the shadow file for
Thanks for any reply,
