Description of problem:
On a system with a working postfix-1.1.5, upgrading produced the following problems:
a) removed existing postfix sendmail command; installed sendmail.postfix but
failed to either rename it or build a link in /usr/sbin; manually creating a
symbolic link between sendmail.postfix and the target sendmail restores outgoing
b) removed daily reporting tools 1postfix and pflogsumm.pl
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Didn't attempt to reproduce because of need to get system back in operation.
This bug was reported against an obsolete rpm which I'm not familar with. The
first problem sounds like /usr/sbin/alternatives was not invoked in %post. I've
tested the current spec file and it seems to handle the links correctly. I'm
sorry it deleted a file, the next postfix rpm (2.0.11) has removed all "rm"
commands and rpm itself should never touch a file not listed in the %files
section of the spec file. I don't think these problems are going to come up
again and given the age of this bug I think I'm going to close it.
