Add options to Configure in formula Dovecot --with-mysql


(James Brown) #1

I’ve used Brew to install Dovecot but it is not authenticating for me because it was not compiled with MySQL support.

I edited /usr/local/Homebrew/Library/Taps/homebrew/homebrew-core/Formula/dovecot.rb and added ‘–with-mysql’ to the args section. Then ran ‘brew reinstall dovecot’.

But I still get ‘auth: Fatal: Unknown database driver ‘mysql’’

Anything I’m doing wrong?

Thanks, James.

This seems like a question that’s better of at the dovecot people, as you’re not really using anything of homebrew anymore. https://dovecot.org

Thanks Sean.

Not sure why you say that. I’m installing using brew (re)install dovecot, so I am using homebrew. I am just trying to slightly modify the config the formula that home-brew uses.

I think what I am doing wrong is not using ‘–build-from-source’?

(Sorry, new to Homebrew).

You’re compiling dovecot and brew isn’t the one throwing an error, dovecot is. In comparison this is a bit like writing apple about a website that you opened on your Mac not delivering the things you ordered.

I’m using dovecot
If you build from source instead of pouring the bottle you will solve your troubles with MySQL
