Description james 2006-05-28 18:52:48 UTC
Description of problem:
$ ll /usr/sbin/privoxy
-rwxr--r--  1 privoxy privoxy 190480 Mar  2  2005 /usr/sbin/privoxy*

$ which /usr/sbin/privoxy
which: no privoxy in (/usr/sbin)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/which

How reproducible:
with that file, always.

Comment 1 Ngo Than 2006-10-10 17:38:30 UTC
The problem is that /usr/sbin is not in PATH. which only looks the programname
in the PATH.

You have to add PATH=/usr/sbin:$PATH.

Comment 2 james 2006-10-10 17:58:37 UTC
Ha, ha, ha!  No, /usr/sbin _is_ in my $PATH, and so this is a bit odd.

I'm now using which-2.16-6.2.1, and which still couldn't find "privoxy" on a bet.

So, unless there is some hardcoded PATH in "which", the "NotABug" label is
wishful thinking.  Look a little deeper...

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

it's not reproduceable in F8.
