I did same thing (just copied it from the post) with postfix in my 64
bit 12.1:

ln -s /lib/systemd/system/postfix.service

and now it starts.

You have to use systemctl enable postfix.service, the symlink is
as a result of that command.

So is it meant to be that system mail doesn't run by default?

services started by default have to be mentioned in
systemd-presets-branding-openSUSE package though postfix is, there was a
bug in the package,

Is this a bug or an intended behavior?

In this particular case, there WAS a bug...


I ran 'systemctl enable postfix.service' on another system where I
hadn't installed the systemd that Larry Finger pointed out earlier.

The symlink was created but postfix didn't start.

I also have this in /var/log/messages, on both machines:

systemd[1]: PID 5251 read from file /var/spool/postfix/pid/
does not exist. Your service or init script might be broken.

I'll install the newer systemd...

zypper in -f

Now postfix starts at boot.
