Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 88755
Upgrade from 8.0 current to 9.0 does not upgrade sendmail which then has problem with OpenSSL
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:53:00 EDT
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install 8.0
2. Upgrade sendmail to 8.12.8-5.80
3. Do an upgrade install of RH9
Sendmail fails to start at boot and with subsequent "service sendmail start"
Sendmail runs at startup
Manual fix is to "rpm -e sendmail" and then "rpm -ivh
sendmail-8.12.8-4.i396.rpm" from RH9.
Can you show the output of what happens when you try to start sendmail, `rpm -qa
|grep sendmail`, and `rpm -qa |grep openssl`?
