Linode / Gentoo / sendmail problem [solved]
 When I first installed the 64-bit version of gentoo on linode, everything looked good - except I couldn't get apache to send email.   When I emerged PHP, it pulled in ssmtp by default, but that didn't seem to be sending mail at all.  So, I emerged sendmail.  That got me a little bit further, but the logs were giving me an error when I initialized the service, or when I tried to send a form email (using the "mail()" command in PHP)  The error was :

SYSERR(root): collect: Cannot write ./

and then the name of the file.

The solution is really easy, and I hope I can save someone the hour it took me to find this.

The owner of /var/spool/mqueue was root:smmsp.

Change the owner of /var/spool/mqueue to root:root

That did the trick for me.  Hope that helps.
