Arrrggghhh - HELP with Sendmail ...

Post by Ashley Brandwoo » Sat, 20 Sep 1997 04:00:00



My sendmail has stopped working on my Solaris 2.5.1 Sparc Box...

I am running 8.8.something ...

I upgraded bind from 4.9.3 to 4.9.5 this evening ... and at some-point
something has become fubar'ed ...

I get:

prompt (root) # /usr/lib/sendmail -a -f /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
ld.so.1: /usr/lib/sendmail: fatal: relocation error: symbol not found:
res_init: referenced in /usr/lib/sendmail

what does this mean? (apart from the fact that sendmail is now fubar'ed)
and how can I cure it ???

Thanks

Ashley

might it be the case, that your sendmail was compiled and linked
with some resolver libs from your former bind version (4.9.3) ?

Possibly you have to recompile sendmail ? I have some installation
notes from the bind distribution in mind ... I suggest reading
the installation notes that come with sendmail and bind, again.

There was a special chapter in the bind readme and Makefile
concerning SUNOS 4 and 5 ...
