"configure" is no longer in the repository because it's built from
"", and it's really annoying to keep checking it in only
to realize that you don't understand the changes because they're all
autoconf spew.
to build configure:
sh SMakefile
to build:
smake init all
then, as admin (suid binaries on AFS)
smake -d install
If you get the error 'can not find sources', make sure imap/imap.c is mode a+r.
To make a release:
- make sure the version number is correct (, imap/version.h)
- add upgrade notes to doc/install-upgrade.html
- add changes to doc/changes.html
- make sure that contrib/drac_auth.patch applies cleanly
- commit to repository
- make dist
- tag the CVS repository with cyrus-release-Major-Minor-Revision
- upload tarball to /afs/
- announce to:
- update
links to new version
- update
from tarball
to bring up a new Andrew Cyrus server:
package.protos for:
a) backend server
%define cyrus21
%define sasl2
%define is_imap
%define is_backend
%define is_saslauthd
%define usesvxfs
%define multiple_lun
%define hasuser.permits
F /etc/user.permits
%define hasroot.permits
F /etc/root.permits
%include /afs/
b) frontend server
%define cyrus21
%define sasl2
%define uses_readwrite
%define wsadmin /afs/
%define is_imap
%define is_saslauthd
%define is_frontend
%include /afs/
c) smtp server
???? - Larry?
Repackage, Reboot, (and redepot/repackage again)
- Key the machine (imap, lmtp, smtp, pop, and put them in /imap/conf/srvtab)
- remove the rcmd (and smtp?) key from /imap/conf/srvtab
- frontends also need mupdate key
- create k5 keys:
/usr/local/etc/ktutil srv2key
chgrp cyrus /etc/krb5.keytab
chmod g+r /etc/krb5.keytab
- Generate an SSL key for the machine and install to /imap/conf/server.pem
(preferrably signed correctly)
Something like:
mail-fe3:sun4x_58:/imap/conf# openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -out /imap/conf/serv
er.pem -keyout /imap/conf/server.pem
Using configuration from /usr/local/lib/openssl/openssl.cnf
Generating a 1024 bit RSA private key
writing new private key to '/imap/conf/server.pem'
