I have recently installed red hat 9 on a laptop after having got it running dule boot with windows on my home pc.
However on the laptop after a few reboots the computer got stuck at boot on starting the sendmail deamon. The only way to get it to boot was to go into interactive boot up and bypassing it starting.
For another reason I reinstalled the operating system on the laptop but once again after a few boots sendmail stops working. On attempting to start it from the services window in x it crashes the program.
The only thing I changed that I think could have affected it is seting the ssh deamon to start at boot however even after rebooting without the ssh deamon it still got stuck.
Is it posible this is a clash with the ssh deamon or is there something else that could have gone wrong?
I won't have the laptop back again for another week and so can't include any log files, sorry.
Yes, sendmail is for moving mail between machines for networks, but for just sending and receiving mail from your ISP, you won't need it. Just disable it, and use your mailer (mozilla, whatever) as you normally would.
