today I have decided to move my mail server from CentOS to Rocky. It all went well except on small piece i.e. the so called Milter helper for Amavisd-new. I am able to install the Amavisd-new without any problems whatsoever, however after trying to install the “Milter” helper that is just an interface between MTA and the AmaViS itself I faced the following problem:
[root@mail spool]# yum install amavisd-milter Last metadata expiration check: 3:33:49 ago on Sun Dec 25 07:19:33 2022. Error: Problem: conflicting requests - nothing provides libmilter.so.1.0()(64bit) needed by amavisd-milter-1.7.2-1.el9.x86_64 (try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages)
Now I do need this in order to completely move from CentOS to Rocky i.e. to configure the DKIM on the mail server. Can you please help me with the installation of the milter interface on Rocky? What will be the correct way? Or is the milter interfaces deprecated. If so what will be replacing it ?
I am currently using the Rocky Linux release 9.1 (Blue Onyx).
now it seems that there is a way to do this in version 8 but not for version 9 i.e.
i am trying to keep that server installation minimal and thus does not want to install from
for that i will have to install munch of other tools that are not needed on production server! I would like to install from “yum install” and not from
When i check CentOS 7 i see that this is provided by epel , i.e.
[root@mail amavisd]# repoquery -i amavisd-milter Name : amavisd-milter Version : 1.7.2 Release : 1.el7 Architecture: x86_64 Size : 66120 Packager : Fedora Project Group : Unspecified URL : https://github.com/prehor/amavisd-milter Repository : epel Summary : Sendmail milter for amavisd-new using the AM.PDP protocol Source : amavisd-milter-1.7.2-1.el7.src.rpm Description : The amavisd-milter is a sendmail milter (mail filter) for amavisd-new 2.4.3 (and above) and sendmail 8.13 (and above) which use the new AM.PDP protocol. Run 'usermod -a -G amavis postfix' when using Postfix and amavisd-milter via the unix socket.
well i do have epel enabled in my case in Blue Onyx
if i search for libmitler in centos i get the following:
[root@mail yum.repos.d]# yum search libmilter Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * base: mirror.netcologne.de * epel: mirror.netcologne.de * extras: ftp.plusline.net * updates: mirror.checkdomain.de ==================================================================================================================== Matched: libmilter ===================================================================================================================== python2-pymilter.x86_64 : Python interface to sendmail milter API python36-pymilter.x86_64 : Python interface to sendmail milter API
bought of those are from epel release in centos, however those are missing for Rocky Onyx.
