Last modified: 2008-10-11 11:22:09 EDT
Description of problem:
redhat-lsb cannot not install due to wrong location of mailx binary
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install redhat-lsb from (koji static repo)
2. observe error
redhat-lsb-3.2-1.fc10.x86_64 from rawhide-x86_64 has depsolving problems
--> Missing Dependency: /usr/bin/mailx is needed by package redhat-lsb-3.2-1.fc10.x86_64 (rawhide-x86_64)
Error: Missing Dependency: /usr/bin/mailx is needed by package redhat-lsb-3.2-1.fc10.x86_64 (rawhide-x86_64)
Package should install cleanly
I note on a debian system mailx is in /usr/bin (a symlink to mail actually which is in /usr/bin)
The issue is inspired by the latest update from redhat-lsb-3.1 to redhat-lsb-3.2
Previously, redhat-lsb required "/bin/mailx", but not it requires "/usr/bin/mailx" .
Please, change /usr/bin/mailx requiirement either to /biin/mailx or just to "mailx" (as a package name). Certainly if it is not conflict with LSB, if any...
..and sorry for my keyboard... iiiiiiii :)
Yep, /bin/mailx is just a symlink to /bin/mail, we remove the symlink according to the bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=457241, because F10 has its own mailx component, and it's installed under /usr/bin/.
Would you please provide the following info?
1. #which mailx
2. #rpm -q mailx
If there's no mailx but a symlink on your distribution, I think you need to install mailx through yum, after that, reinstall redhat-lsb, the error message should go.
Fixed in redhat-lsb3.2-2
Not any issue anymore. Closing
