    exim will not start: Several errors:

    First:


    c [5:04] /scripts # perl -e 'system "id"'
    uid=0(root) gid=0(wheel) groups=0(wheel), 5(operator)

    Perl build is fine, perl scripts run fine, according to date/time, perl hasn't been touched.

    HOwever:
    c [5:05] /scripts # /scripts/restartsrv_exim
    Undefined subroutine &main::sytem called at /scripts/restartsrv_exim line 56.
    c [5:05] /scripts #

    OK, fixed the typo for sytem to system. Can't imagine how that slipped through QA:


    c [5:06] /scripts # /scripts/restartsrv_exim
    c [5:07] /scripts # ps guaxww | grep exim
    root 49364 0.0 0.0 352 208 p1 R+J 5:07AM 0:00.00 grep exim
    mailnull 911 0.0 0.4 5288 4492 con- SJ Fri06AM 0:51.84 /usr/bin/perl /usr/local/cpanel/bin/eximstats (perl5.8.6)

    If I try runnign sendmail manually:

    c [5:07] /scripts # /usr/sbin/sendmail
    sendmail: sendmail cannot be called directly from a shell with the current user id
    sendmail: sendmail cannot be called directly from a shell with the current user id
    c [5:07] /scripts #

    But that error doesn't appear in the exim sources.

    As it sits right now, I'm dead meat on a stick:

    panic log shows:
    ch file or directory
    2005-04-23 23:31:34 1DPXqC-00093K-1E re-exec of exim (/usr/local/sbin/exim) with -Mc failed: No such file or directory
    2005-04-23 23:31:45 1DPXqP-0009AJ-02 re-exec of exim (/usr/local/sbin/exim) with -Mc failed: No such file or directory

    (which is about when the upgrade blew up.)


    Any help much appreciated.

    Go on, have a guess
    You should mention your OS.

    Have you tried running:

    /scripts/updatenow
    /scripts/exim4 --latest


    If those don't help, I'd suggest that you move to the recommended RELEASE tree instead of STABLE.
