Hi,

I'm trying to install SpamAssassin version 3.3.1 on CentOS release 5.2
(Final).

During installation, it reported the following REQUIRED & optional module
missing:

REQUIRED module missing: Digest::SHA
REQUIRED module missing: HTML::Parser
REQUIRED module missing: Net::DNS
REQUIRED module missing: Archive::Tar
REQUIRED module missing: IO::Zlib
optional module missing: Digest::SHA
optional module missing: Mail::SPF
optional module missing: IP::Country
optional module missing: Razor2
optional module missing: Net::Ident
optional module missing: IO::Socket::INET6
optional module missing: IO::Socket::SSL
optional module missing: Compress::Zlib
optional module missing: Mail::DKIM
optional module missing: DBI
optional module missing: LWP::UserAgent
optional module missing: HTTP::Date
optional module missing: Encode::Detect

I then installed all REQUIRED modules along with it's dependencies. But,
I've not installed the optional modules.

My question is, after installation, spamassassin service file is not
available in the location /etc/init.d/spamassassin. Because of this
'service spamassassin start' says "spamassassin: unrecognized service".
What could be the reason for spamassassin service file missing after
installation? Because this service file is not automatically installed as
part of installation, I've little doubt/fear/confusion whether it would
create any other implications during course of usage.

NOTE:
1. I'm installing as 'root' user here.
2. Also, I've installed this on RHEL4 and RHEL5, but I don't find this issue
(missing spamassassin service file).
3. I also tried to copy the 'spamassassin' service file from one of my RHEL5
to this CentOS. It is working fine.

Regards,
Gnanam
