Description Ville Skyttä 2004-05-31 15:27:48 EDT
The -a option to spamd no longer exists and should be removed from
spamassassin.sysconfig.  See /var/log/messages when (re)starting
Comment 1 Warren Togami 2004-05-31 18:22:42 EDT
# -a and --auto-whitelist options were removed from 3.0.0
# prevent service startup failure
perl -p -i -e 's/ -a//' /etc/sysconfig/spamassassin
perl -p -i -e 's/ --auto-whitelist//' /etc/sysconfig/spamassassin

I added this to %post in CVS last night, but rebuild failed due to a
build system problem.  Would you consider this to be acceptable?
Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2004-05-31 19:05:38 EDT
Ah, ok, apparently I was working with an older version

I guess the above would work for 95% cases.  It would fail in the case
of bundled options though, like " -dac", and would actually break the
config in some cases (eg. " -adc").  Coming up with regexps that would
work for all cases might get butt-ugly, like replacing the first one
with something like (still not perfect):

 's/(["\s]-\w+)a/$1/ ; s/(["\s]-)a(\w+)/$1$2/ ; s/(["\s])-a\b/$1/'

But anyway the "-a" should be removed from the "vanilla"
spamassassin.sysconfig as distributed with the 3.0 rpm unless already
