The Red Hat 9.0 (Small) distro has been updated to contain a fix for sm-client, part of sendmail, failing to start.
If you’re using the RH9 small distro and see this when starting sendmail:
Starting sendmail: [ OK ]
Starting sm-client: No local mailer defined
QueueDirectory (Q) option must be set
or this in your syslog:
Jun 24 17:05:04 li-20 sendmail: starting daemon (8.12.8): SMTP+queueing@01:00:00
Jun 24 17:05:04 li-20 sm-msp-queue: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): No local mailer defined
Jun 24 17:05:04 li-20 sm-msp-queue: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): QueueDirectory (Q) option must be set
you should execute the following commands, or re-deploy the RH9.0 image to your Linode using the Distro Wizard.
cp /etc/mail/submit.cf.bak /etc/mail/submit.cf
