Description tpavlic 1999-08-05 21:16:12 UTC
sendmail looks to have been compiled using the old file
locking emulation from the old pre-2.2.x libraries. 2.2.x
(2.1.x+) have completely gotten rid of the old file locking
emulation and now use real BSD file locking. Because of
this, sendmail (and any other program compiled with the old
routines) will not be able to get any locks on an NFS

Please recompile sendmail with the new libraries. rpm and
elm are two other examples of this same problem.

Sendmail has been recompiled, but I suspect the problem lies elsewhere
(knfsd?). I coalescing this problem with elm
