1.1.94 won't let sendmail create SMTP socket

1.1.94 won't let sendmail create SMTP socket

Post by Tom Fetherst » Tue, 07 Mar 1995 02:38:09



I recently compiled a new kernel using 1.1.94 source, with no real errors.
However, when I boot with the new kernel, sendmail is unable to create an
SMTP socket, and aborts.  innd commits suicide as well, for similar
reasons.  Other network functions operate fine, including pcnfsd, etc.

Do I need to a) recompile innd and sendmail, b) get a new inetd or
something, or c) forget it and stick with 1.1.59?

TIA

How about "d) edit /etc/inetd.conf so that you don't have two programs
competing for the same port"?

Either run sendmail with inetd or as a daemon but don't do both. An
omission in earlier kernels hid this problem. It now works correctly
and will refuse to allow the duplicate binding.

1. 1.1.94 Sendmail Problem

        I installed Version 1.1.94 kernel and incoming mail form outside my
domain gets stuck in the mqueue with this error:

(nodename.domain: Name server timeout)

        I remember seeing someplace something about making changes to the
resolv.conf or named.boot for the new kernels, but I can't find it. Can
someone pass the DNS changes to me?

Thanks,
