FC4 and Sendmail - Cannot create sendmail.pem


Not the most UBER of GEEKS when it comes to Sendmail, but I can usually hold my own. However, with the advent of FC4 I am having a boatload of odd problems... not the least of which is that there does not seem to be a "/usr/share/ssl/certs" directory created, thus makiing it seemingly impossible to create 'sendmail.pem' to enable SSL connects to sendmail at 587.

I have dovecot setup to handle my IMAP and that seems fine... may breakdown and try cyrus at some point when I have a day to kill... but SENDMAIL is being the bane of my existence right now

Folks, I know I must be missing something silly here. OpenSSL is installed... YUM has run... everything "looks" good... what is broken?

HELP PLEASE!

Thanks... David

not the least of which is that there does not seem to be a "/usr/share/ssl/certs"
If you "rpm -ql openssl|grep cert" then there should be a /usr/share/ssl/certs dir which should contain Makefile, ca-bundle.crt and make-dummy-cert which are RH-contributed files that are injected in the rpm. If they don't exist anywhere else then that package seems broken, but then you run FC-bleeding-edge-4...

Extract those files from an FC3 or FC2 rpm, make /usr/share/ssl/certs, put the Makefile, ca-bundle.crt and make-dummy-cert there and link ca-bundle.crt to ../cert.pem and you should be set.

Silly question... does anyone know WHICH rpm files are required. For some reason I am having a rotten time trying to find that info in the online forums and in Redhat's website.
