Unable to install rpm file (sendmail-8.9.3-15.i386.rpm)
I wrote a script which send email from linux box.
While i am execute this script i am getting the following message.
/usr/sbin/sendmail: No such file or directory
after searching some posts , i got to know that we should install an rpm file required for sendemail.
i downloaded the file from well known websites. and tried to install using rpm command
rpm -U --nodeps <rmpfilename> --force.
I am unable to install the rpm file, even i am not getting the error meesage on the prompt.
Is there any way to check why the rpm is not getting installed.or there are any pre requisites to install this send email rpm.
prior to this i installed mail rpm on th linux Box
On a side note (small rant):
Never use --nodeps and/or --force on rpms.
There is only one exception: You are a rpm developer and know exactly what you do.
In all other cases you just break your system by introducing binaries, that depend on not-available libs or by overwriting files, etc.
Also, daark.child is right:
RPMs won´t help you too much on a deb based system like ubuntu, but ubuntu does have sendmail packaged as well.
