Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 499041
The rpm package requires logrotate
Last modified: 2011-03-15 10:05:29 EDT
Description of problem:
The rpm package incorrectly requires the logrotate package. All packages should (hopefully) be log rotation package agnostic.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The logrotate package should be uninstallable.
This is fixed in RHEL 6 by splitting the cron related functionality into rpm-cron sub-package. Such rearrangement is not appropriate in RHEL 5 however.
