Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 213389
greet_pause.m4 file is missing from /usr/share/sendmail-cf/feature in RHEL3
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:10 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:
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.
Should be able compile the /etc/mail/sendmail.mc file to produce the sendmail.cf
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.
