Description Kenneth Porter 2007-06-13 11:08:45 UTC
This is a documentation issue. It's just the comments in the default
configuration file that point at the old openssl location.

sendmail-8.13.8-2.el5, as installed on CentOS5.

In sendmail.mc:

dnl # Rudimentary information on creating certificates for sendmail TLS:
dnl #     cd /usr/share/ssl/certs; make sendmail.pem
dnl # Complete usage:
dnl #     make -C /usr/share/ssl/certs usage
dnl #
dnl define(`confCACERT_PATH', `/etc/pki/tls/certs')dnl
dnl define(`confCACERT', `/etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt')dnl
dnl define(`confSERVER_CERT', `/etc/pki/tls/certs/sendmail.pem')dnl
dnl define(`confSERVER_KEY', `/etc/pki/tls/certs/sendmail.pem')dnl

Replace /usr/share/ssl with /etc/pki/tls. This was already done with the
commented-out directives to specify the location of the output files. It just
needs to be fixed for the path to the Makefile.
