There was no set of gyrations I could go through to get
the 6.1 update to *NOT* install sendmail.  It overwrote
my (rpm-installed) installation of postfix, too, without
barfing on the conflicts.
Comment 1 Matthew Miller 2000-02-18 21:11:59 EST
I agree; this is a relatively serious problem. Sendmail should not be in the
base.

As a workaround, you should be able to modify the comps file yourself -- look at
i386/base/comps. You could even replace sendmail with postfix there. (If you
remove the sendmail rpm and replace it with postfix, make sure to run genhdlist
util.)

Of course, if you don't have spare HD space and/or the ability to do a network
install from your own mirror, this doesn't help much.
