Description of problem:
Last night I upgraded my Fedora Core 3 server to Fedora Core 4.  When the upgrade was completed and the server rebooted, it hung on starting sm-client. When sendmail started, it said it was "Running as a fake daemon pid = 5585" and when I try to telnet to port 25, I get connection refused. Now I do find that sendmail is running with pid 5586. I have rebooted the server a number of times and stopped/started by hand also and still sendmail will not allow connections to localhost port 25. Does anyone have any idea what "Running as a fake daemon" means? Or what to do to correct this?

  Thank you,
     Shawn

Example:
[root@grumpy mail]# /etc/init.d/sendmail start
Starting sendmail: Running as a fake daemon pid = 5585
                                                           [  OK  ]
Starting sm-client:

Sendmail is running at:
[root@grumpy mail]# ps -ef | grep sendmail
root      5586     1  0 14:03 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/sendmail -bd -q1h
root      5654  2904  0 14:10 pts/0    00:00:00 grep sendmail
[root@grumpy mail]#

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sendmail-8.13.4-2

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Server with FC3 plus updates
2. Upgrade the server to FC4 from CD.
3.

I just removed the sendmail package and reinstalled it by hand. Sendmail now
starts with out any issue.  Not sure what the problem was, but I think it looks
ok now.

I was not able to reproduce this problem at all.

Can you please try to get a logging output of what the init script does?
