[rancid] Re: RANCID Log Messages: "sendmail: not found" with no mailed diffs

The software is attempting to send you the diffs, but it seems you've removed sendmail.  It might be easiest to just go back into the rancid source directory, check your config.log and see how you ran the configure script and re-run it.  Then 'make install' and it should use whatever new program you're using now.

Subject: [rancid] RANCID Log Messages: "sendmail: not found" with no mailed diffs

Hi List

I've been getting the following log messages in my rancid logs recently, 
along with no emailed diffs (although the cvs updates are happening):

/usr/lib/rancid/bin/control_rancid: 397: sendmail: not found

What might the cause of these messages be? As far as I can tell, it 
looks like control_rancid is not finding any diffs to mail when called, 
even though running "cvs log <filename>" shows the most recent committed 
changes correctly.
