Description Pekka Savola 2000-04-03 09:52:02 UTC
Kerberos support was added in Redhat 6.2.

However, I'd estimate that 99% of Redhat users are NOT really interested in
Kerberos stuff.  Installing pine requires you install krb5-config and
krb5-libs too.  I'd like to keep krb5* out of my systems.

Isn't there a neater way of integrating Kerberos with pine, e.g. via
releasing pine-x.y.rpm and pine-krb5-x.y.rpm ?

What would be more useful than Kerberos, would IMO be SSL patches for
secure IMAP connections.

The need for krb5-config is gone in Raw Hide.

Comment 2 Felipe Mendel N. Prates 2001-02-16 19:53:02 UTC
are you sure? this pine-4.32-1 package was just taken from Raw Hide. look:

# rpm -i --test pine-4.32-1.i386.rpm 
error: failed dependencies:
        libk5crypto.so.3   is needed by pine-4.32-1
        libkrb5.so.3   is needed by pine-4.32-1

Comment 3 Pekka Savola 2001-02-16 19:56:07 UTC
krb5-config, not krb5-libs :-)

There are (or at least were; I think someone removed them) hooks in pine to rebuild the package 
without krb5 etc. using a simple --define or changing the .spec file, though.
