Re: FC2 - Cyrus-IMAPd

Hello Community :)

Preparing a howto for running the Cyrus-IMAPd on Fedora Core 2 I would
like to gather some information on experiences you all had with it so
far. I am interested in the following aspects:

1) If you did an upgrade from FC1 to FC2 (either online or using the
CDs), was the cyrus-imapd package installed automatically while erasing
the obsolete imap?
I ask because it seems some users have faced that behaviour, but the FC2
release notes state that the imap (uw-imap) is replaced by dovecot. My
own experience doing an online upgrade using up2date I had to manually
erase the imap package to solve dependencies.

2) Which of you are facing the problem / bug I reported with


independent whether you did a fresh install or an upgrade? If you see
the same problem on your host, is it an Intel or AMD processor? Please
add your comment then to the bugzilla entry.

Ok, if you have other points to report, feel free to contribute here or by a private mail addressed at me. But please no massive complaints or long rants - my intention is to get something constructive at the end of the road we all as Fedora Core users can benefit from.

I upgraded from RH9 to FC2. After I was done, IMAP didn't work. I had imap, imaps, pop3, and pop3s all working under RH9. None of them worked under FC2. I fixed by:

service cyrus-imapd stop
rpm -e cyrus-imapd
rpm -i dovecot
cd /usr/share/ssl/certs; make dovecot.pem
head -15 /usr/share/ssl/certs/dovecot.pem > \
service dovecot start

Now I can read my email both locally or remotely....
