Description Chris Ricker 2002-11-19 16:13:47 UTC
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 14:19:41 UTC
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 16:27:48 UTC
If links isn't installed, you can always telnet to the port and dump the output ;)

Comment 3 Joe Orton 2003-05-19 09:15:37 UTC
This was fixed in 2.0.40-17, thanks for the report.
