Description Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2018-12-07 18:48:04 UTC
Description of problem:
psad is configured to use /usr/bin/mail but does not depend on it:
$ egrep '/bin/(mail|whois)' /etc/psad/psad.conf 
mailCmd          /bin/mail
whoisCmd         /usr/bin/whois;
$ rpm -qR psad | egrep 'mail|whois'
$

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
psad-2.4.6-1.fc29.x86_64

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf install psad
2. dnf remove jwhois mailx
3. systemctl start psad
4. journalctl -u psad --no-hostname

Actually they are in Recommends: and I'd rather not make them hard deps.
