now Procmail for Autoreply / was libc.so verse libc.so.5


OK I am running a RedHat 9 server. We are trying to install vacation-8.2-3.i386.rpm which is a vacation autoreply program to tack onto Sendmail. We get a conflict in that the program says it has a dependency error. It is looking for libc.so.5.

Well I dug around and found that we have libc.so but not libc.so.5.

Now I am self taught and only know what I have found on my own. I know that libc is a C library and if I am not mistaken .so is a socket.

My question is this... can I just add in libc.so.5 without damaging anything else?

Where can I get it. I did a search and was not able to find libc.so.5 on the RedHat network. I googled it and found several sources but they were all for RPMs that included the file but were for something we did not need.

Any advice? Suggestions?

Thanks

Mark

well libc 5 is pretty old now, was replaced by (drumroll....) libc 6 about 3 to 4 years now i think. That's presumably a *really* old rpm you've found. I'd suggest just trying to compile the source yourself.

Thanks... we'll give the src a crack... but having never really done that... should be fun.

Anyone in the "Linux Inside" have any idea why there is not a simple server side auto reply for sendmail? or even a Linux based tack on?

there is, just use procmail (which should be enabled by default for most sendmail distributions) to do your away messages, it's a doddle.

ok I have the .procmail.rc file in the users home directory and have the following line in the users .forward file "|exec /usr/bin/procmail" and this is what I get back from the mailer...

----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
"|exec /usr/bin/procmail"
(reason: Service unavailable)
(expanded from: <xxxxxxxxxxx>)


----- Transcript of session follows -----
smrsh: "procmail" not available for sendmail programs (stat failed)
554 5.0.0 Service unavailable


What do I have to do to start procmail?
