Please review this Postfix Log Analyzer app and tell me if installing this app on my ClearOS 7.3.0 computer break anything? My ClearOS is in Gateway mode and is being used as a mailscanner and then forwards the clean message traffic to my Exchange environment. It requires Perl distribution 5.8.x and the following Perl Modules.
MIME::Base64;
MIME::QuotedPrint;

Installation Instructions - http://sareport.darold.net/install.html

Thank you in advance for your advice.

rpmbuild is a command which can build rpm packages out of tarballs so I did mean rpmbuild to create your own rpm. There are later versions of the rpm as well. Searching on pbone.net gives v9.0 for a later version of FC. I don't know which one would be best to try.

I've just quickly compiled 9.2 here. You are welcome to try it.

    I don't know what to do. You can force the installation and ignore the dependency and hope that cron/cronie satisfies the requirements the features used from vixie-cron or you can install from the tarball. From the bit of the docs I saw earlier, the cron part may only minor and you could perhaps create your own cron job if necessary if the supplied one does not work.

    Initially I got this...

    error: Failed dependencies:
    gd is needed by sendmailanalyzer-0:9.2-1.clearos7.njh.noarch
    vixie-cron is needed by sendmailanalyzer-0:9.2-1.clearos7.njh.noarch


    I ran YUM Install gd and it installed successfully after resolving some dependencies.

    Then I ran YUM install vixie-cron and that resulted in No package vixie-cron available.
    Error: Nothing to do


    cronie is installed but I guess this Sendmail@nalyzer needs or wants vixie-cron. How can we get Sendmail@nalyzer to use cronie unless it needs something vixie-cron has that cronie does not have?

    Thank you so much Nick. I really appreciate your help. I probably should learn how to compile RPMs on my own, but I will use yours. I can always play with that on a dev box. Thanks again.

    You mean an RPM build of this SendMail@nalyzer application?

    I don't see why it wouldn't work. Don't install Perl stuff from cpan but those two modules come in the basic Perl setup which is at version 5.16.3-291.

    I'd be tempted to try an rpmbuild first so packages get installed to the normal ClearOS locations. There are later fc (Fedora) rpm builds on the internet which may work out of the box.
