Hello,

After updating Exim and S-nail to the latest version, I get the following error when running ./build update_versions:

Code:
# ./build update_versions
s-nail: Warning: $LOGNAME (sshuser) not identical to user (root)!
s-nail: Warning: $USER (sshuser) not identical to user (root)!
Where sshuser is the username I used when ssh into the server.

I tried rerunning s-nail using ./build s-nail, it builds with no errors, but the error stays when I run the update_versions command.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Jose

Hello,

Do you use sudo/su to switch to root? Or sshuser is just another username for uid:0 ?

I login via ssh using sshuser (uid:1000) and su into root to run ./build commands.

Also forgot to mention this happens with CentOS 7.

Just got a similar warning-message:

Code:
Latest version of Exim: 4.93.0.4
Installed version of Exim: 4.93.0.4

s-nail: Warning: $LOGNAME (admin) not identical to user (root)!
s-nail: Warning: $USER (admin) not identical to user (root)!
Latest version of s-nail: 14.9.16
Installed version of s-nail: 14.9.16

Latest version of exim.conf: 4.5.20

I've never done anything with "s-nail" to my knowledge.
CentOS6
