Not quite a newbie, but not very good either, apparently. :(  I did a cvsup
last night, following instructions from the handbook, and hosed up my box.

[EMAIL PROTECTED] /home/ecarmody] $ uname -a
FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE-p7 FreeBSD
5.2.1-RELEASE-p7 #0: Thu May 27 19:57:55 EDT 2004
root@:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  i386
[EMAIL PROTECTED] /home/ecarmody] $

I should not be running 5.2.1-RELEASE due to my inexperience, I know, but
need to in order to support my IDE controller.  I was using the box for www,
sendmail, tacacs, ntp, syslog, samba, for my home network, and just trying
to learn UNIX a la FreeBSD.  

My immediate issues are these:
At boot, ntpd hangs, holding up the rest of the startup process.  If I kill
it with a ctrl-c, sendmail then does some funky things, and also hangs.  

/var/log/ntp shows:
[EMAIL PROTECTED] /var/log] # cat ntp.log 
28 May 23:53:37 ntpd[609]: ntpd exiting on signal 15
28 May 23:56:37 ntpd[409]: ntpd exiting on signal 2
[EMAIL PROTECTED] /var/log] #

which I think is from me killing it via ctrl-c

So, to workaround temporarily, I commented out ntpd_enable="YES" in rc.conf.
Ntpd obviously doesn't hold up my boot anymore but sendmail does.  

Starting sendmail.
safefile(etc/mail/services.switch, uid=0, gid=0, flags=6480, mode=400):
safedirpath(/etc/mail, uid=0, gid=0 flags =6580, level=0, offset=0):
        [dir /etc/mail] OK
        No such file or directory

Then I get similar lines for /etc/mail/, etc/mail/relay-domains,
The last line is:
Recipient names must be specified

I can't seem to find the output I'm seeing in /var/log/messages or
/var/log/maillog, so I've hand-typed in the bit above.

/var/log/maillog has lots of:
May 29 00:00:05 oberon sm-msp-queue[436]: i4S2ug7P087593: to=root,
ctladdr=root (0/0), delay=1+01:03:23, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay,
pri=4980184, relay=[], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused
by []

which also started after my cvsup last night.  

Not sure what else to provide.  Any direction on how to 'shoot and fix this
wins a free beer next time you're in NYC.  Thanks...
