I'm running the 5.2 branch, last updated about 3/23-28. Last night I was working on forwarding sendmail on my freebsd workstation to my solaris mailhub. I modified my rc.conf to change: sendmail_enable="YES" to sendmail_enable="NO" sendmail_submit_enable="YES"
Then I worked on making a submit sendmail cf. I ran `sh /etc/rc.sendmail` and it restarted the daemons. Things worked fine. I could run mailq and sendmail as normal (aside from mail level problems). In the mean time I got side tracked with a solaris problem. I left that root window open and tackled solaris. When I came back to that window, things were not working quite right. `mailq` delayed for about 1min 15 seconds before displaying anything. It took about as long to send a message `echo test|sendmail cory`. Prompt comes back, but the process sits there for some time. Stopping sendmail with `sh /etc/rc.sendmail stop` works quickly. Starting it takes about 3min. Both sendmail-submit and sendmail-clientmqueue take a while before moving. Booting also has this delay. I have since commented out both sendmail lines in the rc.conf. I've also reset the sendmail configuration in /etc/mail. I did a cvsup with src-alll tag=RELENG_5_2 and did a make build/installworld last night. Still have the delay. Mergemaster replaced sendmail.cf, but saw no difference with rc.sendmail. Now for the fun part. I installed strace to see what was going on. Strace exibited similar blocking! ARRGGHH! doing an `strace ls` on one window and an `strace -p` in another shows it blocking at ioctl(3, PIOCWAIT If I hit ctrl-z and then `fg` on the `strace ls` window it instantly runs. If I `strace mailq`, again it blocks. `strace -p` in another window shows same thing. Doing a ctrl-z/fg makes it go and I get a bunch of output followed by this at the end: execve("/usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail", [""], [/* 0 vars */]PIOCWSTOP: Input/output error If I `mailq` and strace -p while it blocks I see it waiting at: kevent(0x3, 0xbfbfbcc0, 0x1, 0xbfbfbcc0, 0x1, 0xbfbfbca0 with a wchan of kqread.
