#3753 closed defect (fixed)

xmail init script does not work with OpenWrt (patch attached)

Reported by: pqa <quentin@…> Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: packages Version:
Keywords: xmail Cc:


There are one or two problems with running xmail from the current package:

  1. The init script does not conform to OpenWrt standards
  2. There is no way of specifying the command line parameters
  3. The configuration files are installed into /var/MailRoot, and /var is a temporary filesystem
  4. Moving the configuration files to a filesystem on the internal flash is probably not a good idea (I can think of no better idea but to include a comment in the /etc/config/xmail file)
  5. The init script could loop indefinitely
  6. The Makefile is missing a dependency
