What's wrong with Solaris?

Post by GreatFre » Fri, 01 Sep 2000 04:00:00



Dear All,

When using Solaris 7, even not doing anything, my CDE interface is damaged
by the following error message:

Aug 29 14:18:52 csehs14 sendmail [25910]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): dbm map
"Alias0": unsafe map file /etc/mail/aliases
Aug 29 14:21:15 csehs14 bootpd [299]: IP address not found: 149.169.40.150

Anyone can help me? As I remember, a file name should be changed so as to
correct the bug of Solaris, right?

Thanks,
GreatFree

This is not a bug with solaris. The permissions on /etc and /var are not
correctly set on your server.

Set them to
chmod 755 /etc
chmod 755 /var

This will stop this message.

Is /etc/mail/aliases world-writable?
Does anyone know how to put a console window up on
the CDE login screen so that such messages are displayed
cleanly?

Pete.

I would reconfigure syslogd to prevent it from logging to
/dev/console so that ordinary users aren't bothered with
such messages at all.
