Description Chris Ricker 2002-11-19 11:13:47 EST
The httpd RPM should Require elinks, since /usr/sbin/apachectl runs "links
-dump" to access status reports. The httpd spec currently isn't requiring
elinks, so things like

/etc/init.d/httpd fullstatus

won't always work
Comment 1 Joe Orton 2002-11-25 09:19:41 EST
I think it would be a overkill to enforce a package dependency for this rather
obscure feature; better to just print "elinks package missing" if ! test -x
/usr/bin/links.  (especially since server-status isn't enabled in the default
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2002-12-19 11:27:48 EST
If links isn't installed, you can always telnet to the port and dump the output ;)

This was fixed in 2.0.40-17, thanks for the report.
