Install SMTP

I'm quite sure this is not the right group, so maybe you can point me in the 
right direction.

I want to install smtp on a hardy linux server and let it run on as well 
port 25 and 26. It needs to authenticate users before accepting to send 
mail. What's the best way to do this or where will I find instructions? I'm 
not very well known to linux, but can manage a bit because of my broad 
experience.

Wow. Not the right group :) You probably want:

[PATCH 0/x] Refactoring mit: Andreas' brain-dump thread

Hi folks,

I'm trying something here. I don't have an online git-repository (does
anyone know of any good providers?) and rather than waiting to complete
a full set of patches, I will post them in this thread one by one. That
way anyone interested can see what is going on in my corner sooner.

I'm not requesting reviews (although you're free to do so anyway). This
is just meant as a notification. However, there will only be patches
that should be good enough to be considered for inclusion.

If you think this is stupid noise, just let me know and I'll go back to
the old way.

Btw, Jon, nice work on the LKML podcast! :)

Cheers,
Andreas

[PATCH 1/x] ELF: Move some ELF functions from util.[ch] to elfops.[ch]

Also move 32/64-bit X-macros (e.g PERBIT) from toplevel
elfops.c into elf_core.c as these are private.

[PATCH 2/x] ELF: Introduce new elf_file object

elf_file encapsulates an in-memory ELF file and related
operations needed by depmod, modprobe and other tools.

This class is based on struct module, as defined
in depmod.h and will gradually replace moduleops.c

In this commit, elf_file has no users, but compiles cleanly.

[PULL REQUEST] Manpage and misc updates

Jon and list,

Feel free to poke fun at me if I did something wrong, but I'm new
with git.  I let github generate a pull request there, but there
was no feedback at all on whether it was successful, so I have no
idea if it actually sent one.  Anyway, here's the link and diffstat:

The diffstat is a bit scarier looking than it should be, as a lot of

Have a look at github perhaps.

I've just (within the last few days) decided to work on manual page
updates (which led to a few other minor bits), and I created an
account at github.  I'm not convinced that I did everything entirely
correct yet, as I'm four days into actually *using* git, but here's
hoping.  Anyway, I'll post that in another thread...

If you look at "git-log generate-modprobe.conf", you see it's had
multiple patches submitted this year.  Now, given the history of m-i-t
development, it's possible that the patches were just extremely
delayed and no-one will care if you delete it.  But I think you should

Okay, fair enough, but it's my understanding that all of the backwards
compat stuff for older modutils is being removed, and since part of the
aim of this patchset was to help in that regard, generate-modprobe.conf
had to go. :-)  I'm hoping Jon will weigh in on this, but if not, I'll
check with the other authors.

CC'd Martin Schlemmer and Mike Frysinger on this - guys, do you know of
some reason that this should stay?  From what I've gathered on IRC with
Jon and others, all of the backwards-compat stuff with old modutils is
essentially gone (or will be soon), so I don't see a reason for the
generate-modprobe.conf file to hang around.  Perhaps I'm missing something
though, so here's your chance :-)
