Yup. Service startup failures often seem to be mysteriously silent.

Odd, sorry guys I was following that tutorial and i noticed that they were actually running and that is why i was getting an error. But when selinux is enforcing im getting the permission denied issue

With selinux enforcing:


[root@host4] ~ >> /etc/init.d/dovecot restart
Stopping Dovecot Imap: [FAILED]
Starting Dovecot Imap: /usr/sbin/dovecot: error while loading shared libraries: libc.so.6: cannot open shared object file: Permission denied
[FAILED]
[root@host4] ~ >> /etc/init.d/postfix restart
Shutting down postfix: [FAILED]
Starting postfix: [FAILED]

If that does not do it, then look at some of the results from a google on [quote]dovecot postfix selinux centos-5 OR RHEL5 OR el5 OR "red hat enterprise linux 5"[/quote]
