No probably about it A.J. Duplication was rife.
But there was a whole lot of overhead as well, 
including library files which where apparently
only Deb specific.

As to the package system, well preventing it from
updating stuff you don't want it too can be a trial!
Even updating the underlying o/s can sometimes add
stuff you don't really need.

Chris.



A.j. hath written:

 Probably the packages installed themselves into
 various Debian-specific locations and then 
 conflicted with the install from source.
 
 For important stuff, I find it generally better to
 always install from 
 source and use the package systems just to manage
 the underlying OS.

Hi,

Just out of interest, are you using Debian Woody?  

If so, did you recompile from source on top the 
existing Debian versions of vpopmail/qmail?  Or 
was it source installs for all?

Chris.

Is it possible that when posting to the list, you all
use '[EMAIL PROTECTED]' in the To field *instead* of
in the Cc:/Bcc:??  

Then we can just hit reply instead of having to edit
addresses and/or inadvertently duplicating messages!

( I'm sure Peter P. will concur )

Cheers,


Chris.

Mat,

All I can say is that I tried this on Deb Woody and 
ran into all sorts of authentication problems ( some
caused no doubt by my own inexperience ). 

I ended up using dpkg / apt to remove all the Deb
software versions then compiled and installed qmail,
tcpserver, vpopmail, qmailadmin etc, from source.
With everything then in the default locations, and no
Deb Woody stuff getting in the way,way, the problems
just seemed to evaporate...


Chris.

 Yes and I recompile the source from the developers
 for all

Thanks for all the advice,
I don't know what happened, but I installed all again ( from source ) and it
start working.
I tried to install with the Debian precompiled packaged ( with apt-get ), Is
really good, it have no problem, but I couldn't import all my
virtualdomains, users and emails, any way to do that???
What is the best way to backup or import/export all users information?
Thanks again.
