Hi,

Im trying to install sendmail.8.12.10 on Mandrake Pro Suite 9.2 but im having some problems with the makemap command.

whenever I run "makemap hash.... or makemap dbm" it returns an error saying
recomplie makemap with -DNEWDB or something along those lines. Where do I put the extra -DNEWDB when recomplilng makemap?

Thanks

That optin needs to be included in the confMAPDEF when building sendmail. The usual method of doing this is to create a devtools/Site/site..m4 file containing at least:

define(`confMAPDEF', `-DNIS -DMAP_REGEX')
 
and then use 'Build', 'Build install'.

I added /devtools/Site/site.config.m4 and places the line:

define(`confMAPDEF', `-DNIS -DMAP_REGEX')

within that file.

This was a new install so I then built sendmail, went into the makemap directory and ran

sh Build -c
sh Build install

Im still getting the same error though

(I've installed the db required from sleepycat)

The default install of BerkeleyDB would be to /usr/local/BerkelyDB.n.n, which isn't someplace that the sendmail build process will look. If your copy of BerkeleyDB is installed that way you need to tell Sendmail about it. The last time I built sendmail from source it was on a system that used BerkeleyDB 3.2.9 and the site.m4 file that I used looked like:

define(`confMANROOT', `/usr/share/man/man')
define(`confDONT_INSTALL_CATMAN')
define(`confINSTALL_RAWMAN')
define(`confMAPDEF', `-DNIS -DMAP_REGEX')
APPENDDEF(`conf_sendmail_ENVDEF', `-DMILTER')
APPENDDEF(`confINCDIRS', `-I/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.3.2/include')
APPENDDEF(`confLIBDIRS', `-L/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.3.2/lib')
