Dev packages needed for sendmail configuration??
When booting up a clean install of RedHat 9 I get the error:
no local mailer defined
queue directory (Q) option must be set
when starting sm-client.
I believe this is because the sendmail configuration files could not be properly built, or built at all, at first-boot. This is becuase I didn't install any development packages!
The problem is, I want to create a very slim installation.
The question is: what does sendmail need to configure its files? From what I've read, I need to be able to run make (I did install make) and m4 (dont remember anything about m4). I want to install only what I need in order for sendmail to run!
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
