init.d/sendmail should use Makefile to rebuild databases
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:46 EDT
Description of Problem:
The current version of the sendmail package includes a Makefile under
/etc/mail to rebuild various databases (access, genericstable, etc.).
This is great, as it allows me to customize my setup. However, the init
script to start sendmail (/etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail) *also* rebuilds the
databases (whether it's needed or not!), but it uses its own crude method.
Therefore, any changes to the database setup I make in the Makefile will
be ignored and my databases will be rebuilt incorrectly.
The init script should use the Makefile to rebuild databases instead of
doing it manually.
