Description Steve Cleveland 2004-05-13 11:49:34 EDT
Description of problem:

After installing Taroon Update 2, /usr/lib/sendmail no longer exists.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Looking at the list of files in this version of sendmail, it should
reproduce every time it is installed.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install latest sendmail package
Actual results:

Scripts or applications set to use /usr/lib/sendmail simply get a "no
such file or directory" error.

Expected results:
/usr/lib/sendmail should be a symlink to /usr/sbin/sendmail for

Additional info:
The symlink /usr/lib/sendmail.sendmail is created instead.  I'm
guessing this was supposed to be /usr/lib/sendmail.

Please call 

/usr/sbin/alternatives --set mta /usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail

There was an error in the old sendmail package.
