Description Patrice Dumas 2005-03-12 10:14:05 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #66396 +++

Description of Problem:

fetchmail on RH 7.2 & 7.3 still depends on smtpdaemon virtual package, though
it can default to /usr/bin/procmail in case no SMTP listener is found.

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

fetchmail-5.9.0-1 (and later too, possibly)

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

binand@binand[~]:(14) rpm -qR fetchmail

binand@binand[~]:(22) fetchmail mail.xxxxxxxx.com --proto imap --fetchlimit 1 
fetchmail: can't raise the listener; falling back to /usr/bin/procmail -d %T

I suppose the dependency of smtpdaemon can be removed from fetchmail now.

Also, a patch to use the -f option to procmail would be welcome.

This patch is a duplicate of bug #66396 and maybe should be solved for Fedora
Core development, that the initial bug can also be closed.

Comment 2 Patrice Dumas 2005-03-16 23:07:48 UTC
Yep, I think the original bug report shouldn't be forgotten, as it is still in
fedora core, that's why I cloned it.

Comment 3 Miloslav Trmač 2005-06-02 21:39:06 UTC
Thanks for the reminder.

In these cases, it is usually better to just add a comment stating that
the same bug is the current version to the original report.
