I also got these:

Jun 4 16:37:23 memory sendmail[1176]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): cannot
lockf(/etc/aliases.dir, fd=4, type=2, omode=37777777777, euid=0): Device or
resource busy

I am still installing INN so I thought that INN caused some problems with my
sendmail setup, but maybe I should recompile sendmail.
These messages started with kernel pre2.0.7 or so. I also have,
gcc-2.7.2 and libc-5.2.18. I now removed the aliases.dir and aliases.pag
files and it seems to be running now, but I thought that sendmail needs
these files ????

I don`t know if this is kernel specific, but suddenly started after
upgrading to a new kernel.

I will try to compile sendmail, maybe this solves the problem for me....

I haven`t used nntpsend yet, so I can`t comment on this....

Good Idea
