Description Chris Paulson-Ellis 2002-08-14 11:04:38 UTC
The exim-4.04-r1 ebuild has use flags that enable the LOOKUP_LDAP & 
LOOKUP_MYSQL modules. My virtual host exim config uses LOOKUP_DSEARCH.

It would be nice if there was a use flag for LOOKUP_DSEARCH (and the rest of 
the LOOKUP_* modules, I suppose).

Comment 1 Nick Hadaway 2002-08-15 15:08:19 UTC
Added support for LOOKUP_DSEARCH to the ebuild.  This will not be activated via 
a use variable as it is a useful function to have regardless of system 

emerge rsync
emerge exim

I will check and see if there are any other relevant LOOKUP variables over the 
next day or two.  Upon finishing the LOOKUP changes I will release a -r2 and 
close the bug report.
Comment 2 Nick Hadaway 2002-08-15 17:26:44 UTC
added LOOKUP_CDB ... more coming :)
Comment 3 Nick Hadaway 2002-08-29 10:32:39 UTC
Many changes have been made to the exim ebuild.  Can you please look over the  
ebuild and tell me if you notice anything missing? 
exim-4.05 will be released into portage soon after the portage freeze is

I've verified that the 4.04-r2 ebuild fixes the bug okay. Thanks.

If you want me to test the 4.05 ebuild, then you'll have to add it to the 
portage tree (perhaps masked), so that I can see it. I don't use CVS.

I have added exim-4.05 to portage.  It is currently masked in 

Let me know how it works for you!
Comment 6 Chris Paulson-Ellis 2002-08-30 07:02:51 UTC
I've verified that exim-4.05 works too.

Comment 7 Nick Hadaway 2002-09-01 17:26:03 UTC
lookups have been changed from mta-* to mysql, ssl, mysql, and pgsql to match
with system default use variables.  Thanks for testing the lookup support.
