Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 290661
Mailman should use relative symlink in /etc/smrsh
Last modified: 2013-04-15 04:52:26 EDT
Mailman shoud use relative symlink in /etc/smrsh:
ln -s ../../usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman
Mailman creates the symlink during installation since 2.0 beta 5 (according to
the changelog) and on all the systems in reach I can see it's there.
What version of Mailman doesn't create the link for you?
No answer => closing.
Mailman shoud use relative symlink in /etc/smrsh instead of absolute link.
Absolute link does not work with chroot (aka Anaconda, rescue mode etc).

Previously, the /etc/smrsh/mailman symbolic link used an absolute path, which may have not work properly in a chroot environment. This error has been fixed, and the symbolic link now uses a relative path.
