Description borgia 2000-07-15 09:33:53 EDT
Tapping enter on sendmail-cf and sendmail-doc rpms (disc2) invokes elm, not rpmfs.
Comment 1 David Mason 2000-07-17 10:46:37 EDT
Preston - not sure why this was assigned to us - please send to appropriate
Comment 2 borgia 2000-07-28 14:59:32 EDT
The culprit is /usr/lib/mc/mc.ext: elm is started by the type/mail handler, that unfortunately matches a partial response of 'file' to the 'mail'
string, thus invoking elm instead of rpm on every package whose name contains the mail substring (happens with xmailbox, too).
I  am raising the priority since it is still not fixed.
Comment 3 Andrea Borgia 2000-08-09 08:42:37 EDT
Still present in beta 5 (Pinstripe)
Comment 4 Preston Brown 2000-08-15 11:02:04 EDT
can you guys hack up MC to fix this please dave?
Comment 5 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-08-17 18:15:41 EDT
The latest file and gmc package don't exhibit this behavior -- gmc tries to open
gnorpm if I hit Enter while the sendmail-cf package from the build tree is
Comment 6 borgia 2000-08-18 07:54:13 EDT
Could you please check also mc (not gmc)? I have never used gmc.
Comment 7 Jonathan Blandford 2000-08-21 14:34:17 EDT
Okay.  This should be fixed in rawhide now.  I removed the 'elm' command as it
was of debatable worth, anyway.
