Greetings, all.

Is postfix available for NeXT platforms? I googled for a package but didn't find one. I downloaded the postfix source but it doesn't compile on my OS4.2 box. I haven't ported software in 15+ years, so my porting abilities are rather rusty... I'd rather just use a package if someone has one. Does such a beast exist?

Thanks.

Michael, thanks for the link. I downloaded it but it fails to build on my system. Sad Here's what I see:

Code:
openstep:5# make

(some make output removed)

[src/global]
Make:  Don't know how to make ../../include/sys_defs.h.  Stop.
*** Exit 1
Stop.
openstep:6# ls include/sys_defs.h
include/sys_defs.h
openstep:7#

what about the files in the "bin" directory? I hoped that these are binaries ready to run on x86/M68k. sorry, I didn't verify this...

haha, oh man, now I feel like an idiot. Smile

Anyway, they do run on my OS4.2 box, but not on NS3.3. I guess that's really good enough for my needs, but I'd love it if I had a NS3.3 version too. Very Happy

Thanks so much!

Yes, I know him personally (I have met him) and have tried to get up with him again recently, but haven't been able to. Sad Maybe I'll try again.

Thanks!
