Subject: courier-imap: Filesystem notification error (FAM/Gamin library)
Date: Sun, 10 Oct 2010 17:51:49 +1300
Package: courier-imap
Version: 4.8.0-2
Severity: normal

Since installing a new squeeze system, accessing mail via
courier-imap, my mail client (Wanderlust on Emacs) keeps reporting
this: IMAP server information: Filesystem notification initialization
error -- contact your mail administrator (check for configuration
errors with the FAM/Gamin library)

I can't find anything in the server logfiles.  Any suggestions?

cheers,
Simon

This is actually a duplicate of #578937 which is not fixed despite a claim
in the bug thread that it is.

Hi There,

I got the same problem after upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze, with mail system 
composed of Courier and Postfix, SASL auth and SSL enabled.

I just installed 1 package from main repository, and problem went away:
as root:
apt-get install gamin

That's all
Hope it helps

Cheers
Zizitist
