When doing ps -e, I don't see anything that says defunct. Is there a switch to show status?
Rufius, I'm not sure of anything.
unSpawn, I tried what you said, but I don't see anything in my mail. I didn't previously have the MAILTO var set, but now I have it set to mythtv. (The first line in my crontab reads MAILTO=mythtv)
The system generated mail isn't something I often look at. I was surprised to see that the last mail I got was on Wed Aug 30 2006, on both root and mythtv accounts
I built the system last June, and have used it extensively ever since. Does it look like I did something to break the mail daemon on that date? What is the name of the stock mail daemon on Fedora Core 4? I guessed at maild or mailerd, but none of those are running.
I looked at /var/log/yum.log, and on that day I erased mythplugins, mythflix and mythphone and installed amarok.
edit: I see sendmail is running. Is that what is used?
