Sendmail M4 configuration base directory?
 
I'm trying to configure Sendmail using Webmin, but Webmin reports:

Quote:

The Sendmail M4 configuration base directory /usr/share/sendmail/cf/m4 was not found on your system, or is not the correct directory. Maybe it has not been installed (common for packaged installs of Sendmail), or the module config is incorrect.
I've searched the net and found lots of posts by people having the same problem, but I'm still to find a solution. Just where is the M4 configuration base directory?

Any ideas?

I'll move this to the Slackware Forum...

Better chance of a reply... :D

After spending most of the day trying to get it to work, I've finally found a combination that works:

Quote:

This page lists the relevant entries from the Sendmail M4 configuration file /usr/share/sendmail/cf/m4/cf.m4, from which the actual configuration file /etc/mail/sendmail.cf is built.
There's also a discussion about the problem on SourceForge . Although none of the suggestions worked for me, it did point me in the right direction.

It took me the better part of the evening, but by following the trace in the CGI, i finally understood what the script was expecting...:

/usr/share/sendmail/cf

... the directory that contain a subdirectory called m4, itself containing the so called 'features' ... arg!

Hope this will help others... I'm using sendmail+webmin in debian.

install sendmail-cf package
 
Ok, I encoutered this today and found this thread. I did not see any fixes - but did eventually figured out that I just needed to install the sendmail-cf package.

Of course, yum list sendmail* did not show me any sendmail-cf package, but I was eventually able to guess it.

"yum"? sounds like you're not using slackware so things may be in slightly different on your system. Probably not worth waking up a 6 year dead thread though.

Simple Fix
 
run this command: yum install sendmail-cf

Then reload your webmin webpage. It worked for me.

Background:
I installed webmin 1.530 on a fedora core 14 system and received the m4 error. The command above fixed it.

This is a Slackware forum, so I have no idea why you would recommend the use of a tool that Slackware doesn't have.

It's nice that you want to help, but maybe you should stay in the Fedora forums while doing so.

Slackware users should install the sendmail-cf package and read /usr/share/sendmail/cf/README.linux for details about the installation.

Can we please let the thread die?
