Hi, I'm brand-new to this list, and chiming in for the first time -
I've set up majordomo on a Sparc using Solaris 2.5 and 64 megs, and on a
Pentium with 32 megs running Linux 1.2.13. The Pentium has Perl 5.00, and
setup was a snap. It worked the first time through. The Sun **had**
perl5.001, and I would get "bus error" and Majordomo would refuse to work
correctly. Then I read somewhere that Perl 5.001 has problems parsing the @
character, and I would either have to go through every script that had a @
embedded in a text string and esacape it, or use a different version of
Perl. So I compiled and installed Perl 5.002 and Majordomo started working
with no other modifications.
This could be the answer to your problems. I recommend upgrading Perl. If
only for the joy of running Larry Wall's 'Configure' script again. <G>
I'd like to know how to make sendmail write directly to a file using an
alias rather than using the archive2.pl that comes with Majordomo. I'm no
sendmail wiz, and it may not even be possible. Can anyone tell me?
