Patrick, the list of files you sent:


I would think they'd either be quite specific to your installation or
just left with default values (=empty). Why are they being touched by an
upgrade at all?

11:22 wahoo:~ > rpm -ql postfix |grep /etc/postfix

The "upgrade" is "zypper dup", not a patch. The entire package is being
reinstalled w/o changing altered files. The subject files not having
postmap performed against are from the "upgrade". Postfix generates
error messages when it detects a xxx.db file with an earlier date than
its matching text file. The "upgrade" does not install xxx.db files, but
has a post-install script which performs postmap against *specific* files
and those subject files are not being included in the script.

I filed a bug report, 555693, but have only received a query inferring
that SuSEconfig was supposed to perform postmap. I does *not*!

I have added comments to the bug report when subsequent postfix updates
are issued and have failed to perform postmap against *all* of the
changed files to no avail. My *last* comment: "I will not comment
further on update failures to perform postmap."

I have manually added the subject files to SuSEconfig/postmap so that I
will no longer see the problem. BUT that ain't how it is supposed to

Rocket Science?
