    Hi and long time no see! I'm back at it again this time with FC5. I know it isn't support with ISPC yet but I said, what the hay... I've taken some notes on the install process from the Fedora 4 how-to. Also know that I did not install apt and I had to use new and very slow repos that supported FC5. I will just list the errors and AFAIK, the rest wasn't too difficulty.

    Step: Now start Postfix, saslauthd, imap and pop3

    error reading information on service ????: No such file or directory

    The msg above occurred when enabling the services below:

    chkconfig imap on
    chkconfig imaps on
    chkconfig ipop3 on
    chkconfig pop3s on


    [root@username ssl]# /etc/init.d/xinetd restart
    -bash: /etc/init.d/xinetd: No such file or directory


    [root@username ssl]# telnet localhost 25
    Connected to localhost.localdomain (
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 i.kicks-ass.net ESMTP Postfix
    ehlo localhost
    250-SIZE 10240000
    250 8BITMIME
    221 Bye
    Connection closed by foreign host.


    Lastly, ISPConfig script doesn't support FC5. Would this be a large rewrite or just a few script changes? Is it possible that I could edit the script myself? Please let me know if I can provide more information.

    Have a look at the files inside the directory install_ispconfig/mod/ and its subdirectories.This might be just a few changes in the configuration files or you will have to rewrite the installer and other scripts.

    Thats why we say that FC5 is not supported by ISPConfig yet. Not supported means not "not tested" it means you cannot install ISPConfig without changing the ISPCongig installer and maybe other sources!

    I guess the package imap doesn't exist on FC5. Please install dovecot instead and run
    chkconfig --levels 235 dovecot on

    In addition to what Till said, you must also modify install_ispconfig/dist.txt to support FC5.

    As Falko said dovecot is a good way i have dovecot working with pop3 pop3s imap imaps protocols in a fedora core 5.
