Description Need Real Name 2003-04-13 06:29:14 UTC
Description of problem:
If sendmail in RH8 has been upgraded to 8.12.8-5.80, the installer will not
install the older sendmail 8.12.8-4.90 included with RH9.  Sendmail 8.12.8-5.80
then has problems finding an ssl library it can use.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install 8.0
2.  Upgrade sendmail to 8.12.8-5.80
3.  Do an upgrade install of RH9
Actual results:
Sendmail fails to start at boot and with subsequent "service sendmail start"

Expected results:
Sendmail runs at startup

Additional info:
Manual fix is to "rpm -e sendmail" and then "rpm -ivh
sendmail-8.12.8-4.i396.rpm" from RH9.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2003-05-16 21:29:39 UTC
Can you show the output of what happens when you try to start sendmail, `rpm -qa
|grep sendmail`, and `rpm -qa |grep openssl`?
