I have kind of a custom setup here. I'm trying to get smtp-auth to work and i noticed that the site says to give suid perms to vchkpw. I assume this is because vchkpw needs permission to read the vpasswd files. Mine is running as qmaild, and when i su to qmaild i can cat the vpasswd and vpasswd.cdb file so i it has read access to those files. my question is what could be wrong! what else does it need read perms too... i must be missing somthing.
## My Setup The qmail setup is pretty much straight from lwq, qmaild(501) is the user and nofiles(500) is the group for the process below qmaild 4900 0.0 0.0 3148 492 ?
