Description Danny Yee 2002-08-29 22:32:34 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020607

Description of problem:
Postfix provides a drop-in replacement for sendmail's "newaliases" command, but
the postfix RPM in Red Hat Linux 7.3 isn't marked as providing
/usr/bin/newaliases - this causes mailman to complain.  (Possibly this should be
a mailman bug.)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install postfix, uninstall sendmail
2. Try installing mailman

FWIW, this is fixed in rawhide....
Comment 2 Ed Voncken 2002-09-01 07:50:45 EDT

I'm running into the same problem when trying to upgrade a couple of RH73 boxes.
What is the recommended workaround, just do a --nodeps when upgrading mailman?

Comment 3 John Dennis 2003-06-13 17:05:19 EDT
The current spec file does provide /usr/bin/newaliases
