Recently upgraded a server from F9 to F10, and was surprised to find
that dovecot would immediately die after starting. /var/log/maillog
indicated the following:
Jan 15 15:30:04 socrates dovecot: Dovecot v1.1.7 starting up
Jan 15 15:30:05 socrates dovecot: Fatal: auth(default): Unknown
authentication mechanism 'gssapi'
Jan 15 15:30:05 socrates dovecot: Fatal: Auth process died too early -
dovecot version 1.1.7-1.fc10.
Once I removed gssapi from the list of authentication mechanisms,
dovecot would start.
After reverting to the dovecot from Fedora 9 (1.0.15-16.fc9), dovecot
starts up just fine with gssapi in the list of authentication mechanisms.
As far as I can determine, there is no reason gssapi should not be a
valid authentication mechanism with the later dovecot version. Bug ?
