sendmail init script's make printing warnings at startup
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:46:18 EDT
Description of Problem:
When sendmail is started after a fresh install say, warning messages
appear on the console.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. do a fresh install
2. # service sendmail restart
make: *** Warning: File `sendmail.cf' has modification time in the future
(2002-09-04 01:50:59 > 2002-09-03 19:28:57)
make: warning: Clock skew detected. Your build may be incomplete.
No warning message.
Presumably there is a good reason for sendmail.cf being time stamped in the
future? Adding a "2> /dev/null" to the make command seems a little dangerous
too, since then genuine errors and warnings will not be shown.
I think this is an installer issue to be resolved within anaconda. At least
discarding all error messages from "make" would be really too much.

Fixed in CVS
AFAICR I'm still seeing the warnings in recent trees.
I've been told by a few people that this looks fixed for them. Note that we can
only do things "right" with NFS/CD installs (not enough data in the instimage
for the other install types). Is this different than what you're seeing?
Hmmm, strange, I have been seeing this all along with
standard nfs installs.
My "/etc/sysconfig/clock" contains:
Does anaconda run in UTC?
I believe this now fixed, though I don't know how...
