Description Tim Pepper 1999-12-05 20:32:03 UTC
I don't use sendmail. If I use the upgrade option on the RH6.0 cd to upgrade my older redhat installations, the installer appears to have no option to not install sendmail. This means I have to upgrade, uninstall sendmail, and fix my qmail installation as sendmail's installation causes a few little problems with it. It would be really nice if the redhat installer had the option of leaving other mail daemons in place and not installing sendmail for those of us who use qmail and other non-sendmail mail daemons.

Is sendmail in the base component thesedays?
Comment 2 Tim Pepper 2000-02-04 17:14:59 UTC
I don't know if it's a "base component" or not...it just seems to always install no matter what. Sendmail doesn't appear in the list of packages that I can choose to install or not install, although I believe its config files are listed there and I don't install them. Nevertheless sendmail installs. Is that what a "base component" is...something that is always installed regardless of setup options?

Sendmail is indeed in the base package and therefore will get installed no matter what. I have added your request to control whether sendmail gets installed to a list of feature requests.
