    starting postfix problem

    I am using Fedora Core 4. When I installed Fedora, I picked for the postfix mail server. when I try to run postfix i get this:


    # postfix check
    postfix: fatal: chdir(/var/spool/postfix): No such file or directory


    # postfix start
    postfix: fatal: chdir(/var/spool/postfix): No such file or directory


    Why didn't fedora chreate the folder /var/spool/postfix ?

    It looks like you need to create a /var/spool/postfix directory for some reason. On my FC3 machine it is:

    Code:
    $ ls -ld /var/spool/postfix
    drwxr-xr-x  16 root root 4096 Jun 10 02:38 /var/spool/postfix
    I would not think that it would have changed between FC3 and FC4.

    postsuper and postlog are scripts that were not created for some reasion when Fedora 4 install Postfix. Any idea why Fedora is not creating these things?
