As of five or so days ago I’m getting a ton of messages like those below in /var/log/messages:

Nov 29 13:17:59 fcshome sendmail[24977]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 13:17:59 fcshome sendmail[24977]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 13:28:21 fcshome sendmail[25101]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 13:28:21 fcshome sendmail[25101]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 13:38:06 fcshome sendmail[25209]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 13:38:06 fcshome sendmail[25209]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 13:41:26 fcshome sendmail[25275]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 13:41:26 fcshome sendmail[25275]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 13:50:41 fcshome sendmail[25504]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 13:50:41 fcshome sendmail[25504]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 14:05:52 fcshome sendmail[25797]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 14:05:52 fcshome sendmail[25797]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 14:15:42 fcshome sendmail[25905]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 14:15:42 fcshome sendmail[25905]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 14:25:36 fcshome sendmail[26021]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 14:25:36 fcshome sendmail[26021]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 14:36:29 fcshome sendmail[26171]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory Nov 29 14:36:29 fcshome sendmail[26171]: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb2: No such file or directory

there are A TON of them.

I’ve not (intentionally) configured sasl for sendmail. I do have dovecot configured so my wife can use pop3, and the authentication is specifically set to use the local linux box’s username and password. It has been set that way for at least two years, and I’ve not changed anything.

I did some googling and most of the hits talk about configuration errors in cyrus-sasl. But since I”m not running that, I don’t know where else to dig.

Anyone have a clue why I’m getting these, suddenly? and more importatnly, how to fix it?

thanks!
