sendmail sans IPV6



Hey all,

I'm trying to run sendmail 8.11.4 as part of 2.9-stable and am
receiving error messages similar to:

>Mar  5 00:16:48 laptop sendmail[12876]: starting daemon (8.10.1):
>SMTP+queueing_(_at_)_00:30:00
>Mar  5 00:16:48 laptop sendmail[12876]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root):
>opendaemonsocket: daemon MTA6: can't create server SMTP socket:
>Protocol not supported

>SMTP socket
>Mar  5 00:16:48 laptop sendmail[12876]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root):
>opendaemonsocket: daemon MTA6: server SMTP socket wedged: exiting

NOTE: I don't get the notice about wedged socket, but I get "optional
socket disabled".  I found this example in the mailing lists with the
following fix posted.

It turns out that I am getting this since I have removed IPv6 from my
kernel.  I have looked for the file mentioned here
"/etc/mail/sendmail-IPv4only.cf" but it doesn't exist on my system.

Anyone have any ideas how I can build and configured sendmail to not
use IPv6 cleanly.

Thanks,

Keehan
