Description R P Herrold 2001-08-09 00:33:18 EDT
The install does not detect the movement of 'helper' functions at RH 7.0 in
initscripts; the initscript version at RH 7.0 initial was:  5.49-1

[root@clone mail]# service sendmail stop
/etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail: /etc/init.d/functions: No such file or directory
Shutting down sendmail: /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail: killproc: command not

[root@clone mail]# service sendmail start
/etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail: /etc/init.d/functions: No such file or directory
/etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail: daemon: command not found

[root@clone mail]# rpm -q sendmail
[root@clone mail]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Linux release 6.1 (Cartman)


See the JBJ discussion of this type of addition to the .spec file as a
matter of software engineering at:


Proposed fix:

Add to .spec file:

Requires: initscripts >= 5.49-1

and it is compliant
Comment 1 Florian La Roche 2001-08-09 07:12:03 EDT
I changed the init script back to previous versions, so I don't have to
add this requirement.

Fixed in release 8.
