Postfix Enabler for Tiger - Update

Category : Technology/PFEforTigerUpdate.txt

I think I've solved it. A few things essential for Postfix to run were missing from the final Tiger release installer. Postfix Enabler for Tiger will check, and if they're not there in the system, it'll attempt to put them back. Postfix on Tiger seems to work fine again on my test PowerBook.

But we're going to do one more round of testing before we release the update. It'll be version 1.1.1 now.

Basically, the entry for MAILSERVER was missing from /etc/hostconfig, plus a couple of other things, and these confused Postfix Enabler because I wasn't expecting that.

Actually I had made sure to test both a fresh install and an upgraded system using my developer release of Tiger, which was updated up to December or January. The changes must have come after that.

Never ever again will I attempt to release something the same day as Apple's OS launch. It's just not worth it. And maybe, try not to ask me for free serial numbers unless you've contributed something like $50. My mood's changed. This is really hard work.
