Errors in Exim, rebaseall, inetd.
Fri Dec 17 14:34:00 GMT 2010
I have installed cygwin and Exim into 3 different Server 2008R2 (64bit).
I'd like to report the following errors that are consistent through
out. This applies to all version of 1.7.x so far.
1/ Exim install script does not complete through the regular setup.exe
system. The script never gets its .done file extension, so it pops up
an error "did not complete", but it does seem to have completed its
install task regardless.
2/ Exim will not run error free, until you do a "rebaseall" on the
installed cygwin. The errors are seen when it tries to do a mailing,
and it creates a lot of "permissions access errors". Rebasing the
system fixes it.
3/ rebaseall script has a fault on line 91, where if [ ! -w "$TmpDir"
]. This always returns an error, despite the file location being OK
and writable. It's probably a permission issue again. If we comment
out this code part, the script does its job OK.
4/ inetd.exe: This is not an error, but a big inconvenience. When
this inetd is installed as a service (cygrunsrv -I), and then started as
a service (net start inetd), it does not keep a Services.msc presence.
Hence you cannot stop it (net stop inetd). The only way to stop it is
with a force kill process on the inetd.exe.
