    After installing cPanel using the latest installer (as of Tuesday) it keeps failing to install exim. Server status states 'exim (packageeximisnotinstalled) failed'. I can install exim with 'yum install exim' which installs 4.43, but then that yeilds 'exim (exim-4.43-1.FC3.1) failed' in server status. When I try to install from /scripts/exim4, it tries to install exim 4.50 but fails (see attached file).

    I have tried installing cPanel on fresh installes of Fedora core 3 (both minimal and server without x/gui) and on two different machines (simple pII test server and what will become production quad xeon). I am on the 15 day trial license as I compare this with other host managment products. I am currently favoring whm/cpanel (even against free options) if only I can get past this roadblock.

    From scouring these forms and google, I see some discontent towards using exim. Is it possible to use another mailserver with cpanel (I don't see naitivley, but maybe with an add-on)?

    update to the latest edge version (in WHM) and then run:
    /scripts/exim4 --latest

    This should install the new version, this is only an issue because FC3 support is only in Edge.

    I am in the process up upgrading to edge packages. The goal is to create a production server, and from the docs, edge is not recommended for production environments, so should I fall back to an earlier Fedora or would you recommend a distro that works well with cpanel. I chose fedora for testing simply because it had cpqarray already built into the installer kernel.

    I would recommend using an OS that is currently fully supported (please check http://cpanel.net)

    Switching to Edge had no positive results, same error as in the text file from running '/scripts/exim4 --latest' after making changes and running updates in WHM. I will retry with a different distribution. Thank you for your efforts.
