Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 150944
fetchmail shouldn't depend on smtpdaemon anymore
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:01 EST
+++ 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)
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.
Yep, I think the original bug report shouldn't be forgotten, as it is still in
fedora core, that's why I cloned it.
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.
