I was installing Postfix postfix-2.5.5 on Solaris. At the time of
compiling the Source with make I have defined the parameters (for
changing the default values of the following from /etc/ to /opt etc.)
When I run make install, it asked a load of questions again about where
I want the stuff located. One of the things it asks about is config
files, which defaults to /etc/postfix and I change it to /opt/postfix/etc
It then carries on with similar questions before copying a load of files
into their location.
Then it stops saying
postfix: fatal: /etc/postfix/postfix-script: No such file or directory
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `install'
Which looks like it's still expecting the config files to be in their
default location, rather than the one I entered. It's actually put the
files in the custom location, but then looks for them in the default place!
I have rerun it after creating a link to /etc/postfix/main.cf to
/opt/postfix/etc/main.cf then it doesn't throw that error, it stumbles
over another config file with exactly the same error instead! But this
not i am expecting to end up with creating the links.
Is this a bug or have I overlooked something?
