Description Chmouel Boudjnah 1999-03-31 03:47:48 EST
There is a bug in the alias of sendmail, all alias is linked
to /var/tmp/usr/sbin/sendmail instead of /usr/sbin/.

A fix is to put on the .spec files of sendmail this :

(cd $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/usr/bin
for i in `find . -type 'l'|sed 's/^\.\///'`;do
	ln -sf ../sbin/sendmail $i

This is fixed in a later sendmail package.
