Awww, you're just saying that Matt. We all know you don't really want to keep your job for too long. You need to go long term Mongolia trekking with me! or was it that other trip you had planned or wait... hehe.

It's cool, I think perhaps it would have been petty to have mentioned details.

Yay! My cold's gone! \o/

Google led me here so your evil plan worked. Now I too have working SASL logins.
Yer my hero. w00t!

by it_redneck at 18:40 on 21st Nov 2005
oh the path that google can lead us down.
thanks for the sasldb2 tip.

do you think one can just create a symbolic link ?

by Matt at 12:09 on 28th Nov 2005
A symlink would probably work, yes. I was a little frustrated when I was trying to fix it so as soon as I hacked around and got it working, I just stopped. :-)

by Josh at 04:26 on 02nd Mar 2007
I've spent literally 1 hour trying 50 different things. You just saved my life. I owe you a chicken.

by trix at 20:04 on 15th Jul 2007
It did not work for me :-(
I am using Fedora 7 now.

I did solve the problem, but I think it is not the best way to do it, so I was looking for other solutions when I got to your page.

My solution is to add the user postfix to the security of /etc/sasldb2 and give it read permission. This one works for me.

by Ryanclaw at 14:05 on 14th Jan 2008
Hello I got the same problem but after reading some online docs i got this one and after successful work your page is on the other tab. your solutions is great.

by Robert at 05:21 on 04th Mar 2008
Note that you can also specify where saslpasswd2 creates its database:

$ saslpasswd2 -f /var/spool/postfix/etc/sasldb2 -u blah.com username

by boudiou at 21:18 on 10th May 2008
I found this page by googling the postfix error message.
Hopefully you will save me some debugging :)

Thanks dude !!!

by Dimitry at 05:48 on 09th Dec 2008
Old thread I know, but may help someone. You may also get permission denied errors, in which case do:
chown root:sasl /var/spool/postfix/etc/sasldb2

(use appropriate user/group)

by f00ked at 07:30 on 18th Feb 2009
nice - experienced much pain - sasl is evil and must be punished. mysql to do yet, but http://www.greens.org/~cls/linux/howtos/smtp-auth-saslauthd.html helped do a basic setup


by different Matt at 06:59 on 20th Feb 2009
he said it was being rooted (isolated) to the longer path above

by Kresho at 11:15 on 23rd Feb 2009
I tried with a symlink first, but it did not work - it complained about too many levels of symlinks. So I copied the file, but I also had to change ownershop of the file from root.root to postfix.postfix. I use ubuntu hardy.

Heh. Better safe than sorry from the cashier's point of view. Admittedly you only have to remember 2 years (1987 for 18 restrictions and 1989 for 16 restrictions) so she was possibly a bit slow.

I've never used a Point of Sale system that prints up the date 18 years ago btw and never noticed it happening on ones I've seen.

by Matt at 09:10 on 19th Oct 2005
Oh, well I'm sure someone big like Sainsbury's does. :)

Anyway, she could at least remember both those years. Heh.

I'm sure you have a calculator in your mobile phone.... use it!

In America they go one better, big 7 seg display signs that say
"You can only buy [booze/fags/whatever] if you were born before: [Todays date minus 18 years]"

by Twiggeh at 19:47 on 25th Oct 2005
How silly. I worked at Somerfield for 2.5 years, it takes all of 5 seconds to check the DoB. Still, you gotta be 100% sure about these kinda things. You take a risk and get it wrong you could lose your job. Except your case obviously, if you see what I mean

Matt, Andy left at Nottinghill Gate I do believe... and that was about 4-5ish. Maybe James can confirm that.

by lil rich at 18:31 on 18th Oct 2005
i resent the fact that u say i forgot a great deal! it was only around U!
other than that i remember it.

by James at 18:51 on 19th Oct 2005
Lol, so you remember the woman at U that wanted a t-shirt but me and Neil weren't prepared to give ours up ;)

by lil rich at 22:25 on 19th Oct 2005
i said i didn't remember U.

by James at 23:04 on 19th Oct 2005
You don't remember me?? :(

Without wanting to give the game away, I've decoded it, and now ROT13'd my solution to avoid spoilers for those inclined to try.

To, er, decode my decoding, just run tr 'a-zA-Z' 'm-za-nM-ZA-N' on a unixy box and paste it in.

I would just like to thank you for a fascinating morning of Perl hackery, textual analysis and ultimately, revelation.

by Matt at 13:15 on 14th Oct 2005
I think you got the tr parameters the wrong way round. But yes, well done! :-)

Kudos to you, sir.

by Evil Rich at 13:39 on 14th Oct 2005
Why yes, so I did :) tr 'm-za-nM-ZA-N' 'a-zA-Z' it is then. Yay for the kudos!

start takin cod liver oil capsules and stuff. maybe get a support for ur wrists.

by Gordon at 15:35 on 14th Oct 2005
I've been getting RSI since school, but cod liver oil and putting some effort into setting up how you work seems to keep it down so its hardly noticeable. I also drink loads of water (2 litres a day or more), which seems to help lots too. I think it comes with the job tbh, but it worries me what I'll be like in 30 years time.

It's all too easy to lose track of what your friends are up to when you don't see them much. Several of my friends who went off to uni (I went for the full time job option) have finished their courses now, and it feels like I don't know them. An evening down the pub seems to sort things out though...

by Matt at 21:10 on 12th Oct 2005
Yeah, it was like that in the holidays back from Uni. But it seems all different now that I'm still at home when they've all gone back to enjoy their student lives. :)

by Ally at 10:13 on 13th Oct 2005
Hey hey hey!!
I still love you !!!
xxxxxxxx

by Matt at 13:24 on 13th Oct 2005
