Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 57630
Installed ethernet card, and sendmail failed
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:38:45 EDT
Description of Problem:Using the 7.2 system network configuration I entered
the data of host: Daisy and ip 10.0.0.3 and rebooted. The ethernet card
came up fine, the computer name changed to Daisy as desired, but dial-up
network and sendmail were broken. I redid dial-up network and it now works
well but sendmail takes 3 minutes to load and the same time to send an
e-mail. I added Daisy and 10.0.0.3 to /etc/mail/access and made access.md
which sendmail can read. But it has no effect!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Just set up a ethernet card.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up an ethernet card
3. notice sendmail takes 3 minutes to load.
With a Red Face I report finding the problem. You must use a complete URL
address for the ethernet/network card. I had just used Daisy.
So went to the file /etc/hosts and where there was 10.0.0.3 Daisy I added:
10.0.0.3 Daisy.dog Daisy
and sendmail and the ethernet card are happy.
