#1653 Postfix Failed to save options : Failed to regenerate table


There already is a bug submitted for this, but was not
filed correctly. I am resubmitting to make sure that it
is not overlooked. The original Request ID is "919991".

Re: "I get this error on postfix's..."; "Failed to save
options : Failed to regenerate table : postmap: fatal:
usage: postmap [-Nfinorvw] [-c config_dir] [-d key] [-q

I tried upgrading postfix from 2.0.x to 2.1.0 but that
didn't help. My 'Alias databases used by the local
delivery agent' is set to
'hash:/etc/postfix/aliases' just as the folowup in
919991 says. I'm
hoping this will be fixed soon. Here are my software specs:

Webmin 1.14
Postfix 2.1.0-pre-20040209
Mandrake Linux 9.2

A "vi /etc/postfix/canonical" command shows that a file
definately exists with lots of comments in it, but no
data. Running this command returns nothing: "postmap
/etc/postfix/canonical". chmod ing the file to 777 didn't
seem to help either.
Here is the URL from the URL bar when it happened,
virtualmin also seems to give me the same error when I
add a user, It doesn't seem to be only one module
(perhaps a deeper problem?)

If this is not a bug, please let me know where to get help.
