Description Ryan Tilder 1999-06-22 20:46:29 UTC
This causes SmartList to break due to inability of smrsh to
execute the necessary programs located in

Recreating symlinks should fix it, but /etc/smrsh should be
%config entry under %files


Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 1999-07-28 08:11:59 UTC
You can not have a directory marked as config. /etc/smrsh is a
directory that is owned by the sendmail package. When sendmail goes,
that directory goes too (if it is empty)

Also, we don't ship SmartList, so if SmartList is intended not to be
used with sendmail it should not depend on files provided by the
sendmail package.
