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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install postfix, uninstall sendmail
2. Try installing mailman
FWIW, this is fixed in rawhide....
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?
The current spec file does provide /usr/bin/newaliases
