You disabled IPv6 support in your kernel, that's why.
MTA6 is the sendmail listener on IPv6. (Did you grep
But look: /etc/mail/sendmail-IPv4only.cf they even provide you with an
alternate sendmail configuration file for folks without IPv6.
Just use the power of the "mv" command.
1- I did receive correctly the first time your message, why send
twice. It's only annoying.
2- "make build" is fun but from time to time a "cd /usr/src/etc ;
make DESTDIR=/tmp/newroot distribution-etc-root-var" and some "diff"
advanced usage in order to update /etc, /var with new files and new
changes is needed.
