Description Tethys 2002-04-08 10:39:49 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020204

Description of problem:
The webalizer RPM has a dependency on the webserver capability.
This is invalid. Log file analysis is completely separate to actually
serving the pages. My logs, for example, arrive at a logging server
via syslog. When trying to install webalizer to analyze them, I had
to use --nodeps, because that machine doesn't have apache (or any
other webserver) installed.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build a base machine, without a webserver installed
2. rpm -Uvh webalizer-2.01_06-11.i386.rpm

Actual Results:  Install fails because the webserver capability isn't satisfied.

Expected Results:  Install should succeed.

Additional info:

This isn't a bug with webalizer itself, it's just a packaging error.
Comment 1 Ngo Than 2002-06-21 14:32:34 EDT
it's fixed in 2.01_10-5
Comment 2 Stephen 2004-11-17 00:27:07 EST
It's broken in 2.01_10-25 i.e. FC3.  To install webalizer it also
wants to install apr, apr-util, httpd, httpd-suexec.

I just want to analyze the logs from my colocated server..!
