Is there an issue with exim4?

Postby troypulk » 06 Jan 2020 03:27

Code: Select all

Errors were encountered while processing:
 exim4-config
 exim4-base
 exim4
 exim4-daemon-light
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Just tried an update using apt

Thanks

EDIT:

I think I found the issue

Code: Select all

Installing new version of config file /etc/exim4/exim4.conf.template ...
/usr/sbin/exim4: /lib64/libcrypt.so.1: version `XCRYPT_2.0' not found (required by /usr/sbin/exim4)

Code: Select all

dpkg: error processing package exim4-base (--configure):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
I was under the impression that if a package was not ready for install for this issue it would be held back until the dependency was installed.

I did not have any problems installing exim4 on SolydX 10.

I found the libcrypt here:

Code: Select all

$ dpkg -S libcrypt.so.1
libc6:i386: /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libcrypt.so.1
libc6:amd64: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcrypt.so.1
Note that exim4 is not installed by default on SolydXK. So, I only could do a clean install of exim4, but I tried to simulate your situation by installing an older version first and upgrade that. Still no errors.

I found this article with a possible solution: https://unix.stackexchange.com/question ... ersion-xcr


SolydXK needs you!

Thanks I'll look into it further.

The error message I posted:

Code: Select all

/usr/sbin/exim4: /lib64/libcrypt.so.1: version `XCRYPT_2.0' not found (required by /usr/sbin/exim4)
says that XCRYPT_2.0 is missing and required for exim4.

I'm not sure why exim4 was installed so I deleted it, no more issue.

If something comes of it I'll reinstall it.

We have purged exim on newer ISOs but of course its still present on older installs. If you don't need it purging is best.
