Description Moritz Barsnick 2002-11-13 12:50:57 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
In sendmail-8.12.6-1, the %provides section of the i386 RPM funnily supplies 
the full paths to a few man pages. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
8.12.6-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qp --provides sendmail-8.12.6-1.i386.rpm
2.
3.
	

Actual Results:
smtpdaemon
/usr/sbin/sendmail
/usr/bin/mailq
/usr/bin/newaliases
/usr/bin/rmail
/usr/share/man/man1/mailq.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/newaliases.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man5/aliases.5.gz
sendmail = 8.12.6-1


Expected Results:
smtpdaemon
/usr/sbin/sendmail
/usr/bin/mailq
/usr/bin/newaliases
/usr/bin/rmail
sendmail = 8.12.6-1


Additional info:

I have yet to see a package which might require these particular entries. ;-)

It's probably some %find-provides magic looking for the corresponding binaries 
(mailq, newaliases, rmail).

Even if no other rpm requires them, they should be ok to stay in the
current rpm.

greetings,

Florian La Roche
