Description seifried 1999-06-03 01:57:26 UTC
the smrsh command is somehow bjorked. RedHat 5.2 box
upgraded mostly to 6.0, running a contrib version of
sendmail rpm (8.9.2), SmartList works fine with it. Upgrade
d to sendmail 8.9.3 as shipped with Red Hat 6.0, SmartList
no longer works. Tried on a fresh 6.0 box, same thing. Here
is the output from /var/log/maillog:

Jun  2 19:58:28 mail sendmail[15592]: TAA15592: from=root,
size=210, class=0, pri=30210, nrcpts=1,
Jun  2 19:58:28 mail smrsh: uid 8: attempt to use
exec /etc/smrsh/flist rebar-redhat-request
Jun  2 19:58:28 mail sendmail[15594]: TAA15592:
to="|exec /etc/smrsh/flist rebar-redhat-request",
delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=prog, stat=Service
Jun  2 19:58:28 mail sendmail[15594]: TAA15592: TAA15594:
DSN: Service unavailable

DSN service unavailable for any SmartList list, for all
services, i.e. it won;t execute the external programs
needed by SmartList, tried the latest version of SmartList
no good either. Apart from this the sendmail that ships
with RH 6.0 works fine.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-06-05 16:29:59 UTC
Can you try creating a symlink in /etc/smrsh to whatever flist
you are trying to execute, something like
	ln -s /usr/bin/flist /etc/smrsh/flist

Do the same for any other smartlist executables that are mentioned
in sendmail.cf ...

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-09-01 13:08:59 UTC
This problem appears fixed (i.e. create symlinks in /etc/smrsh for
mail add-on executables).
