Description Darren Patterson 2009-05-04 18:39:29 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):

How reproducible:
Every time.

Expected results:
The logrotate package should be uninstallable.
Comment 1 Panu Matilainen 2010-11-15 05:54:32 EST
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.
