New install MailScanner will not start Fedora 12

Followed two sets of instructions for MailScanner and Postfix.
Have successively installed other systems before.

Postfix starts and promptly puts emails on HOLD
But MailScanner does nothing - no processes running at all - no messages in
the maillog file or messages file.
Even copied config from working MailScanner and it does the same thing.

[root at mailgate log]# service MailScanner start
Starting MailScanner daemons:
         incoming postfix:                                 [  OK  ]
         outgoing postfix:                                 [  OK  ]
         MailScanner:                                      [  OK  ]

[root at mailgate log]# service MailScanner stop
Shutting down MailScanner daemons:
