Hi all, I have been running a md site for a while now and everything was
fine until we had a hard drive crash and the majordomo had to move. now, I'm getting
errors which lead me to believe that the new machine we moved to
isn't completely setup. I am hoping that one of you may have
an idea as to whats going on here, because I'm a little baffled.
The History of Majordomo at On Technology:
I installed majordomo in february or march. It was running fine at
that time. When we made the cut over from oldon to the another machine there was
a problem with the sendmail on that machine (it won't deliver mail locally
so majordomo will not work on that box). Majordomo was left on oldon
as on (the netra) became the main mail server.
The on machine merely re-directs majordomo mail to oldon
Majordomo was working relatively well on oldon until the / /usr partitions
had a disk problem and the /u drive (where majordomo resides) was moved
to a classic which was loaded up with sunos 4.1.4.
Situation with Majordomo:
I sent a message from peterk@oldon to table@on
table@on is aliased to table@oldon
table@oldon is aliased to
"|/u/majordom/wrapper resend -l table -h on.com table-outgoing"
table-outgoing@oldon is aliased to
owner-table is aliased to peterk@oldon

The strange thing is that even though the list owner gets this message,
the list functions properly and sends mail to the list recipients and
they do not see any error messages.
It is possible that the Sunos 4.1.4 installation was not complete and
that the wrapper which was compiled under 4.1.3 is looking for
libraries specific to 4.1.3 which are not present on the 4.1.4 box or
that it is looking for libraries which should be present but which
were not installed.
These are the errors I get when I try to compile wrapper.c

This pointer warning is an unimportant warning which majordomo has had forever
or so I'm told. I got this warning on the initial compile, but it didn't

These ld: errors are new and prevent the wrapper from working properly.
Other Problems with oldon:
#1. If there is a symbolic link in a directory Fetch (a mac ftp client)
and possibly netscape will not display any file list for that directory. PC
ftp clients seem to work. I do not know why. all three (fetch, pc-ftp, netscape)
worked when we were on the old oldon regardless of whether or not symbolic
links were present.
#2 Strange library errors on basic tasks
I entered this command
# chmod 777 *stat*
and got this error
chmod: README.staticld.so: call to undefined procedure _strerror from 0x610c
I have seen other strange errors like #2 which lead me to think that we
may be missing some important system resources. As to what they are, it is
a mystery to me.
Does my theory that its a library problem sound like it could
Please let me know if you have ideas on this one.
