I don't use sendmail. If I use the upgrade option on the RH6.0 cd to
upgrade my older redhat installations, the installer appears to have no
option to not install sendmail. This means I have to upgrade, uninstall
sendmail, and fix my qmail installation as sendmail's installation causes a
few little problems with it. It would be really nice if the redhat
installer had the option of leaving other mail daemons in place and not
installing sendmail for those of us who use qmail and other non-sendmail
Is sendmail in the base component thesedays?
I don't know if it's a "base component" or not...it just seems to always install
no matter what. Sendmail doesn't appear in the list of packages that I can
choose to install or not install, although I believe its config files are
listed there and I don't install them. Nevertheless sendmail installs. Is that
what a "base component" is...something that is always installed regardless of
Sendmail is indeed in the base package and therefore will get installed no
matter what. I have added your request to control whether sendmail gets
installed to a list of feature requests.
