  Configuring sendmail on Jaguar
Subject:   Solved

Response to: Exec format error at boot time

This is a hack, but it seems to have worked:

In the startup script for sendmail, located at, /System/Library/StartupItems/Sendmail/Sendmail, I added a line before the commands to start sendmail:

sleep 10

It seems that allowing the computer a pause, for some reason, allows sendmail to launch properly.

I don't know how little a pause you can get away with -- I got tired of fooling around with the whole darn thing after a while.

As always, your mileage may vary.
