Description Telsa Gwynne 2002-10-21 18:23:07 EDT
Description of Problem:

RH 8.0. I did not install this box, but it seems to have been a fairly
minimal install. Account had been created for me and had been collecting
mail for a week or so. Gave it a password; logged in; started mutt (from
mutt-1.4-4) and met:

$ mutt
sh: line 1: gettext: command not found

Mutt would start, but the error was annoying me. 

Did up2date gettext, which collected gettext for me, and tried again. Error
above vanished.

Is there a missing dependency there? I had created a .muttrc and a
.bashrc but there was nothing particularly special in either of them.
I don't entirely see why I would need gettext, but apparently I do.

Cc'd Alan cos he did the install and presumably knows whether there
was anything special about it.

Hm, bug in /etc/Muttrc.
Comment 2 Milan Kerslager 2003-03-13 18:54:27 EST
The bug still exist in Red Hat Linux Beta 8.0.94 (Phoebe). The error message is
printed when starting interactively and when starting from command line too. Try
with and without gettext package in the system:

mutt -s "Test" your@mail.com < /etc/passwd
