Procedure 40.  Installing the O/S
  1. I did it like described in Conference under Docker.

  2. In /etc/aliases, create an alias for root that points to an actual user, and an alias for that user that directs his/her mail to an address outside of the system. Then run sudo newaliases and try the new config with:


      echo "This is the (almost) empty mail3"|mailx -s "rootmail from lwp21" root

  3. ntpq -p
