sendmail.mc changes silently ignored if sendmail-cf not installed
Last modified: 2009-01-07 16:53:37 EST
Description of problem:
After a fresh F9 install, I merged the changes I had made to my old FC6
sendmail.mc file into the one installed by F9. I rebooted the machine and
sendmail started without any errors. After a few days, I finally noticed that
although sendmail is running, it is not running based off of the sendmail.mc I
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install basic F9 (no sendmail-cf package)
2. Modify sendmail.mc & reboot
sendmail.cf was not rebuilt, yet there were no error messages displayed at boot.
Sendmail was running, but it was not running with the configuration I expected.
sendmail.cf is rebuilt from the modified sendmail.mc when the sendmail service
is started at boot.
Init script in sendmail-8.14.3-2.fc11 will print a warning if sendmail-cf is required to update the configuration.
sendmail-8.14.3-2.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
sendmail-8.14.3-3.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
sendmail-8.14.3-3.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
