Unable to find your qmail-newmrh file, specify --enable-qmail-newmrh ???? Im so stuck :(

Hi all

Im getting so stuck with this qmail installation, im stuck at the part where im about to configure vpopmail.

After you download and unzip this is the step:

cd vpopmail-5.4.13

./configure --enable-logging=p --enable-auth-module=mysql --disable-passwd --enable-clear-passwd --disable-many-domains --enable-auth-logging --enable-sql-logging --enable-valias --disable-mysql-limits

make && make install-strip

The first error I get is:

configure: error: Unable to find your qmail-newu file, specify --enable-qmail-newu.

Then I do a locate and then find this file in /usr/srv/qmail/qmail-1.03/

After that it then asks for newu

Now I did a locate and there is no newmrh

This is the main problem I am having,  errpr: Unable to find your qmail-newmrh file, specify --enable-qmail-newmrh

Im getting desperate now, ive looked at google for hours and nothing seems to match.

Anyone with knowledge of this file or could send me or advice please help :)

usually /var/qmail/bin/qmail-newmrh or  /usr/srv/qmail/bin/qmail-newmrh
but try find it wit following command
find / -type f -name qmail-newmrh

Hi Pablour I tried the extra thing you mentioned, enable-qmail-newmrh

But it still cant find it even when I specify.

THe only newmrh I have found is where you said raven in /usr/src/qmail/bin/ there is like 5 files


like the other files there should be one without the c or the 0 or 5 if you understand what I mean

But there isnt one

> newmrhc
I assume newmrh.c

Have You tried the find command I provided? It qmail is installed, and there is no newmrh, then the installation is broken (newmrh is included in bare qmail distribution). Reinstall qmail.

I tried that command yes and got this message.

find: /var/named/run-root/proc/21384/task: No such file or directory
find: /var/named/run-root/proc/21384/fd: No such file or directory
find: /var/named/run-root/proc/21385/task: No such file or directory
find: /var/named/run-root/proc/21385/fd: No such file or directory

find: /proc/21384/fd: No such file or directory
find: /proc/21385/task: No such file or directory
find: /proc/21385/fd: No such file or directory

You said assume newmrh.c. well I did the same, and it actually took it, but Im just concerned if its the right file, how comes the other files didnt use c, they just used the actual file if you get me.

But what is the C file?
