syslogd exiting on signal 15

syslogd exiting on signal 15

Post by Doug Sanders » Sat, 14 Jun 1997 04:00:00

If I have these two lines lin /etc/hosts:   localhost     spirit

then my boot process seems to hang for about 60 seconds when it gets to:

    /usr/sbin/sendmail -bd -q 15m

and I see these messages:

    sendmail[110]: My unqualified host name (spirit) unknown;
                   sleeping for retry
    sendmail[110]: unable to qualify my own domain name (spirit) --
                   using short name

but everything runs fine after that.  If I run ppp-on, I see the expected
messages in the ppp log file.

However, if I have these two lines in /etc/hosts:   localhost
    #   spirit

then it zooms through the sendmail startup at boot time, but it
seems to hang for a few seconds when it is starting syslogd, and I
see a message in the log file about "syslogd exiting on signal 15",
and when I run ppp-on, the ppp log file does not get updated.

QUESTION: what do I have to do to to /etc/hosts to keep my syslogd
happy and not "stall" when sendmail is started up a boot time?

I am working on a Toshiba T4700 laptop that is not on a network
unless I modem-in to my internet provider.  My /etc/HOSTNAME file just
contains the single word "spirit".

I'm looking for a list of signals in the FreeBSD kernel, as the message

I need to find out what this error is, how to detect what is causing the

Can someone please help?

Thanks in advance
