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):
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
Expected Results: the logrotate package should be deleted.
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.
Fixed in 1.4.1rh-5.
make that -6.
