Adaptation of your Debian packages source list


You will need to adapt your Debian packages source list (/etc/apt/sources.list) to match the following :

deb http://debian.mirrors.ovh.net/debian jessie main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free

# jessie-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates main contrib non-free

I use debian.mirrors.ovh.net because it's my ISP mirror but I advice you to choose your nearest ones

aptitude update
aptitude safe-upgrade

Proceed to the debian package install

Install correct on Wheezy but with the old CNAME lookup error that prevents qmail sending emails... so not really usable !

Can anyone add the DNS patches in this package or tell me how to get the sources and rebuild the package with the patches inside ?

Patches can be found here :

This should work on Debian Wheezy and also Ubuntu 12.04 LTS...the documentation is pretty up to date, if something is not working:
