July 23rd, 2009, 12:42 PM
hello everyone i am trying to install postfix on my ubuntu 9.04 from source
when i issue make command from terminal i am getting following error.

make -f Makefile.in MAKELEVEL=Makefile
(echo "# Do not edit -- this file documents how Postfix was built for your machine."; /bin/sh makedefs) >makedefs.tmp
No<db.h> include file found.
Install the appropriate db*-devel package first.
See the Release_notes file for more information
make: ***[Makefiles] Error 1
make: *** [Makefiles] Error 2

i have read all Release_notes and i wasnt able to figure out the solution.
anyone here can tell me how to fix this up???

Hi have you got all the required packages installed?
You can install them from the terminal with

sudo apt-get build-dep postfix
