Angry RH8 sendmail and sound problem

Hi all,

I have a problem. I got a RH8 box and I got the system up and running
but I have some problems. One of them is related to sendmail.
The daemon is running but I cannot send or receive mail.
Receiving from outside is not a problem, and I do not know if I can
receive from inside since I cannot send mail either. I have the
default config from RH. It works fine in all the other RHs (7.0, 7.2 at least)
However this one is giving me headaches.
Does anybody know of any reason of such a behavior and how to correct

The other one is related to the sound. I get the soundcard pretty well configured. No problems there. Now, I get freeamp nicely working too. Good.
Start Mozilla, open a web page and it has some java applets. One emits a 'bip' from time to time, then when the current song finishes freeam freezes
and I have to kill it manually. It doesn't start again until I close mozilla.
I guess it has to be with the capture of the dsp, but do not know how to
fix it.

Thks to all.......

sendmail works only if you have a DNS registration (a mean TRUE DNS registration). This is a common cause of sendmail not working. If you have a working configuration from 7.2, and you have upgraded to 8.0, look in /etc, and you'll find something like sendmail.rpmsave. This is your old configuation.

No, no. I have RH7.2 in a different comp. but both are under the same
conditions regarding DNS.
Moreover I have transfered the from the 7.2 to the 8.0 (note
that these distributions differ even in the directory tree) with no positive

Nevertheless I still have the problem with the sound....... does anybody have
a solution?
