Created attachment 609975 --> http://bugzilla.suse.com/attachment.cgi?id=609975&action=edit main.cf mods caused by yast2 network
After a long time, I used yast2-network to change something in the network configuration of my node. (Changed the hostname.)
As a result, my postfix main.cf was overwritten and rendered unusuable. I'm entirely unsure why some of these parameters were touched - why would it unset mailbox_command, set mailbox_transport, unset relay_host?
Yes, this was facilitated by me having /etc/sysconfig/mail:MAIL_CREATE_CONFIG="yes" at the default value, but normally, none of the yast2 tools overwrites manually modified files silently, without even creating an in-place backup.
Especially since this looks as if unrelated parameters were touched. I might have understood rewriting "mydestination", but the other parameters make absolutely no sense.
I'm attaching the diff here - I restored the main.cf from backup.
