Dan: On my earlier post to you about the script modifications, I forgot one
or two other things. I noice your script interrogates the /etc/passwd file
in seach of a pw, however, the install sets up Majordomo as a Pseudo user
"user majordom" as follows:
majordom:*:54:54:Majordomo Pseudo User:/usr/local/majordomo:/nonexistent
Wonder what your script will return from that setting? All dir/files are
installed as user/owner majordom:majordom and of course access is needed to
work on things.
Also, I've listed several path changes in my earlier notes and of course
there is a different treatment for the "aliases.majordomo" whci install
places in: /usr/local/majordomo instead of the /etc/mail path. It expect to
build an "aliases.majordomo.db" in /usr/local/majordomo as well. I only got
the "permissions" to map properly there once and gave up and moved mjd
aliases into the main aliases in /etc/mail. It complained about "group
writable" or "unsafe".
Also, I uncommented your "parsing" lines (starting at #143) to allow the
script's interrogation of the sendmail.cf file looking for the aliases, if
that is appropriate???
The changes I sent should be the "new standard" for FreeBSD ver 4.5+.
Hope the info is of use and shall look forward to your review of the script
in light of the above and previous submission of modifications.
