Description Jeff Moe (jebba) 2005-01-22 17:07:09 EST
Description of problem:
After an update of sendmail it starts on boot, even when the previous
version was set to not start on boot. So if sendmail is installed, but
not in use, a user who thinks they have it disabled will have it
re-enabled at boot when they upgrade.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sendmail-8.13.1-2 and earlier.

How reproducible:
Get an older version of sendmail, turn it off on boot, upgrade.

Steps to Reproduce:
rpm -U --oldpackage sendmail-[old version]

chkconfig --del sendmail

rpm -U sendmail-8.13.1-2

chkconfig --list | grep sendmail    [shows sendmail on]

Actual results:
sendmail is set to start on boot.

Expected results:
sendmail is left at it's previous setting to not start on reboot.
Apache, for example, honors it's previous setting.

Additional info:
