You mis-understand ... For me, it seems that these specific users are only needed to build the qmail .deb. The compromise made YEARS ago was to add a script that will add the users when the qmail-src package is installed to save the user the trouble of doing it themselves. The remaining complaint about the qmail package is moot, as qmail is not part of Debian.

No, it is not the VBScript or the ADO that is confusing; it is the UserAccountControl bitmask attributes that are the game changer.

I guess it would end up as qmailrocks on steroids. http://osdir.com/ml/mail.qmail.jms1-patch/2008-02/msg00012.html This will make your life much easier. It occured to me that if a symlink existed in the jms patch library for "current-stable" and "current-dev" for each major patch, it would make it much easier for installation from I have made 40 releases of qmail since I started managing the package, and take it quite seriously.

Any thoughts? Check This Out Hopefully this release will put this bug to rest. if i were to create a symlink, i would probably forget to update that symlink- and anybody who downloaded the patch using the symlink wouldn't know what version they actually had. which means getpwnam() is failing.

That's not really an upstream bug, it's a bug in the qmail packaging, and one that makes it substantially harder for anyone to NMU this package. The version of the patch could be documented inside the script. Cheers! It's hard enough for me to distinguish what exactly theproblem is...I need a programming course.

I know that my run scripts are highly customized and it is increasingly difficult to determine what features need lines in these scripts as the patch versions go up. Full text and rfc822 format available. You both seem like smart guys, and I'm sure you can figure out how to add a user. have a peek here There may be a conflicting account with the same username if you haven't verified domain ownership yet.

The problem seems to be that your debian/rules is misusing the binary-arch and binary-indep targets for purposes other than building the packages listed in debian/control.

eg: qla2x00 from sarge. I can't get the Debian folks to include the qmail users again in the default passwd file. Click on the name ofthe user or group that currently uses this name. Bug marked as found in version 1.03-41.

I downloaded qmail 1.03, patched it with the 7.05 combined patch like I have done dozens of times before. auto-uid.c: In function `main': auto-uid.c:22: warning: return type of 'main' is not `int' ./load auto-uid substdio.a error.a str.a fs.a ./compile auto-gid.c auto-gid.c: In function `main': auto-gid.c:22: warning: return type of 'main' More than six years ago, a different Microsoft Scripting Guy wrote an article called How Can I Get a List of All the Disabled User Account Accounts in Active Directory?
