Description Ben LaHaise 2001-09-19 16:34:07 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.7-10smp i686)

Description of problem:
Unable to remove logrotate package due to dependancy from sysklogd.  This
happens in all recent versions of RHL, including the 7.2 betas.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e logrotate on any recent version of Red Hat Linux

Actual Results:  [root@toomuch root]# rpm -e logrotate
error: removing these packages would break dependencies:
        logrotate >= 3.5.2 is needed by sysklogd-1.4.1-4
[root@toomuch root]# 

Expected Results:  the logrotate package should be deleted.

Additional info:

It looks like sysklogd depends on logrotate for /etc/logrotate.d.  I think
we should just allow rpm to handle the creation/removal of the directory,
or make it part of the filesystem package.
