Description Mark Huth 2006-11-01 04:21:11 EST
Description of problem:
As per $subject, if you try to enable the greet_pause sendmail feature on RHEL3,
sendmail returns an error similar to this:

/etc/mail/sendmail.mc:123: m4: Cannot open
/usr/share/sendmail-cf/feature/greet_pause.m4: No such file or directory


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sendmail-8.13 with RHEL3.x


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add greet_pause feature to /etc/mail/sendmail.mc:
   FEATURE(`greet_pause',`<some_wait_value>')dnl
 
2. Try to compile the sendmail.mc file with either:
   make -C /etc/mail ... or ...
   m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/mail/sendmail.cf

3. Get the error as per problem description.
  

Expected results:
Should be able compile the /etc/mail/sendmail.mc file to produce the sendmail.cf
without error.


Additional info:
As a workaround I copied the /usr/share/sendmail-cf/feature/greet_pause.m4 file
from my RHEL4 machine to my RHEL3 machine and recompiled the sendmail.mc.  This
time it compiled without error and I was able to use greet_pause feature of
sendmail for limiting spam.

So I suppose the fix for this is just to add the greet_pause.m4 file (from RHEL4
perhaps) to the /usr/share/sendmail-cf/feature directory on RHEL3.

I am sorry, but greet_pause is not part of sendmail-8.12.x.
Closing as WONTFIX.
