/etc/aliases.

- Stop the sendmail service.

# service sendmail stop

- Use the `alternatives` command to choose the default MTA.

# alternatives --config mta

- Run the postfix service.

# service postfix start

4. Restrictions/Known Bugs

-------------------------------------------------------------

o system-config-language can not be used due to a failure to connect to

yum repository (we will fix it during maintenance).

If you want to use the DVD as the yum repository you have to create

a yum repository configuration file in /etc/yum.repos.d/asianux.repo

like below (/media/Asianux is the mounted directory of the DVD):

[asianux]

name=asianux

baseurl=file:///media/Asianux/
