Steps to get useful debug information

Procedure to create a debug info file

  • If you have problems please run pluchk1.sh and pluchk2.sh scripts and compose a regular e-mail to me attaching the requested files.
    • Please run these scripts as a normal user, NOT root.
  • Create scripts pluchk1.sh & pluchk2.sh by opening your editor & copy & paste each of the scripts below to their respective files.
  • Make the scripts executable.
chmod +x pluchk1.sh
chmod +x pluchk2.sh
  • now run first script, compose a winlink message then run the second script.
./pluchk1.sh
 
# using what ever mail client you have, compose a mail message and address it to yourself and n7nix
 
./pluchk2.sh
  • Finally compose a regular e-mail message, address it to me, and attach all these files:
    • ~/tmp/pluchk.txt
    • /etc/postfix/main.cf
    • /etc/postfix/master.cf
    • /etc/postfix/transport
