RH 6.1 and ipop3d

RH 6.1 and ipop3d

Post by Max » Tue, 28 Mar 2000 04:00:00



Hello,

I've set up a RH 6.1 as a mail and NIS server, but I'm having trouble
with ipop3d and sendmail.
The ipop3d daemon works fine for few days, then apparently without
reason it locks up. In /var/log/maillog there is only the first message
(port 110 service init from XXX) and nothing about login. I don't know
if it is the result of this strange behavior (or vice versa) but also
sendmail locks up and rejects connections. ps aux|grep sendmail gives
this:

sabina   11801  0.0  0.3  2516  436 ?        D    Mar24   0:00 sendmail:
IAA1180
root     13741  0.0  0.3  2104  400 ?        S    Mar24   1:29 sendmail:
rejecti
valdevit 13742  0.0  0.3  2332  400 ?        S    Mar24   0:00 sendmail:
JAA1190
valdevit 14093  0.0  0.0  2332    4 ?        S    Mar24   0:00
[sendmail]
tullio   14508  0.0  0.9  2332 1196 ?        S    Mar24   0:00 sendmail:
JAA1194
root     29648  0.0  0.4  1244  512 pts/2    S    12:12   0:00 grep
sendmail

You see, the daemon is rejecting connections. There is one of these with
the D status, which I don't know exactly what it means. ps aux|grep
ipop3d gives:

ghersini  8768  0.0  0.1  1888  148 ?        D    Mar23   0:00 ipop3d
berni    11814  0.0  0.1  1888  148 ?        D    Mar24   0:00 ipop3d
valdevit 12529  0.0  0.1  1888  148 ?        D    Mar24   0:00 ipop3d
valdevit 12535  0.0  0.1  1888  148 ?        D    Mar24   0:00 ipop3d
berni    12894  0.0  0.1  1888  148 ?        D    Mar24   0:00 ipop3d
sabina   29485  0.0  0.6  1888  872 ?        S    11:34   0:00 ipop3d

Actually, I tried to kill all these ipop3d, but some of them survived
(the ones with the D mark), and also killing sendmail did not solve the
problem. The only way to make things run again is to reboot!

I will be grateful to anyone who has an idea about what's really
happening.

1. RH 6.1 and Mandrake 6.1 Freeze on Install

Metrobook II  Laptop -
    233 mHz PII
    80MB RAM
    Logitech GlidePoint touch pad
    TEAC CD220E CDROM drive
    1.4 GB HDD

I try to install RH 6.1 from CD from the new RHEA-044 boot disk.  It
says it finds a PS/2 port (is this the touch pad?).

If I give no parameters to the boot: prompt, it continues to read the
CD, the screen turns blue, it continues to read the CD and then it
freezes.  The only way out is the power switch.

If I give "text" to the boot: prompt, it reads the CD, offers me a
choice of languages and freezes.

With Mandrake, I can choose language and keyboard and the CD is read for
all the packages.  It says something like "some sort of PS/2 device
found on psaux" and freezes.

I've searched the "linux on a laptop" sites and can't fine the Metrobook
mentioned.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!
