Description Henri Schlereth 2001-01-14 16:38:50 EST
mailq message 'alias database not available root' (logwatch messages)
newaliases bitches that /etc/aliases file doesnt exist. File exists. Reverted to previous sendmail.cf, restarted 
and newaliases works. This was on an upgrade RH7.0 --> beta2.
Comment 1 Henri Schlereth 2001-01-15 05:55:36 EST
The beta2 sendmail.cf has
AliasFile = '/etc/aliases' which causes sendmail to barf
The RH7.0 sendmail.cf has:
AliasFile = /etc/aliases which works. The no tick marks wins.
Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-01-15 16:46:35 EST
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Beta-3
Comment 3 Henri Schlereth 2001-01-17 14:40:21 EST
This is all related to the tick marks in the sendmail.cf file on the aliases file.
