Asked by Carl Davis on 2008-11-02

I am having difficulty getting quota support working and wondered if it is even supported in this .deb?

according to the changelog here

https://edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/postfix

No I think

To apply the patch:

wget http://vda.sourceforge.net/VDA/postfix-2.5.1-vda-ng.patch.gz
gunzip postfix-2.5.1-vda-ng.patch.gz

This should unpack the postfix-2.5.1-vda-ng.patch file which must be applied in order to have support for user quota.

cd postfix-2.5.1
patch -p1 < ../postfix-2.5.1-vda-ng.patch
dpkg-buildpackage

If you see the following message once the compilation ends, don’t worry, it’s as expected:

dpkg-buildpackage: warning: Failed to sign .dsc and .changes file

Now move to the upper directory, where the freshly genereated .deb files reside:

cd ..
ls -1 *.deb

postfix_2.5.1-2ubuntu1.1_i386.deb
postfix-cdb_2.5.1-2ubuntu1.1_i386.deb
postfix-dev_2.5.1-2ubuntu1.1_all.deb
postfix-doc_2.5.1-2ubuntu1.1_all.deb
postfix-ldap_2.5.1-2ubuntu1.1_i386.deb
postfix-mysql_2.5.1-2ubuntu1.1_i386.deb
postfix-pcre_2.5.1-2ubuntu1.1_i386.deb
postfix-pgsql_2.5.1-2ubuntu1.1_i386.deb

(The actual versions of your compiled packages may differ slightly.)

Then we install patched postfix and postfix-mysql packages:

dpkg -i postfix_2.5.1-2ubuntu1.1_i386.deb
dpkg -i postfix-mysql_2.5.1-2ubuntu1.1_i386.deb
