Description Thomas Steudten 2006-07-20 09:35:20 EDT
Description of problem:
the alias file is missing in the Source (SOURCE3) in the sendmail.spec file.

Setting old_setup to no the build fails, because there´s no /etc/alias file on
the system.
Setting old_setup to yes the alias file should be copied from SOURCE3, which is

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

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. build sendmail without /etc/alias file or
build sendmail with old_setup set to yes.  

The alias file can only be in /etc/alias or /etc/mail/alias - why don't you test
this first, before try to use a non-existing alias file?
Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2006-07-31 10:24:01 EDT
Support for OLD_SETUP will be dropped in the next sendmail package in Fedora
