Installing sendmail 8.12.3 problem

By shadowpassword ·
Hi,

I have attempted this several times, and tried to find what I am missing in the man pages, the READMEs and at Google. Unfortunately I still can't seem to get this to install right.

After downloading 8.12.3 I extracted into the /etc director with tar xzvf.

I then change to the sendmail-8.12.3/sendmail directory and run sh Build.

Then I go cd ../cf/cf directory and cp generic-linux.mc sendmail.mc. I use the default configuration here.

I then run from cf/cf: m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/sendmail.cf

and I get: m4: /etc/mail/sendmail.mc: No such file or directory.

On checking /etc/ there is not a /mail directory created.

What am I missing here? I thought sh Build would create any necessary directories.

I am using Mandrake Linux 8.2, kernel 2.4.18-6mdk.

Installing sendmail 8.12.3 problem

did you run sh Build install in the sendmail subdirectory?

did you create a user smmsp?

you also run sh Build sendmail.cf in cf/cf not "m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/sendmail.cf"

then you run sh Build install-cf

Next time read the INSTALL file. It is very clear in there what you had to do.
