Hello; I have a Red Hat Linux 6.2 server and am trying to finish my setup
of Majordomo 1.94.5. I am new to Linux and its cousins, having been a
Macintosh person for many years. Apologies if my problem betrays my
relative inexperience, but I have gone through the FAQ, and through at
least three books with sections on majordomo... and have nearly given up
Everything is working except timed digests. They never ever send out.
Oddly enough, digests which are sent out after a quantity of text is
accumulated appear to work fine.
I am perplexed. I've fiddled with cron. I've tried altering various
options on the main and digest configuration file. I've tried every
imaginable variation of digest aliases.
I suspect three oddities might give a clue.
The "mkdigest [listname] [password]" command does not give an error, but
does not send out the digest either.
When I attempt to run the "digest" script from the shell I get the
following error: "Can't locate config_parse.pl in @INC (@INC contains: /
-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.00503 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/i386-linux /
/perl5/site_perl/5.005 .) at digest line 413." However, config_parse.pl
is right there in the defined Majordomo home directory.
When I attempt to run the "digest.send" script in the Tools subdirectory,
it gives me this "digest.send: cd: /usr/spool/digests: No such file or
directory". This directory in fact does not exist, but it was not created
during the Majordomo installation... and I do not see where it is
specified in any installation or configuration component. I wonder if it
is trying to reach the working directory for the digests, which was
defined at a different location. If so, I am confused why this script
does not "know" it's looking in the wrong place.
Any assistance onlist or offlist would be eternally appreciated. Thank you.
