Description bcboy 1999-12-31 17:35:30 UTC
The mgetty-sendfax rpm includes /usr/bin/faxspool, which does gif format
conversion by running giftoppm. This program doesn't exist in RedHat 6.0.
Probably giftopnm should be used.

...probably these standard format conversions should be in one place,
rather than having lpd, efax, and mgetty all duplicate (with varying
results) the same conversions (gif, text, ps, etc. to a printer/fax

Fixed in mgetty+sendfax-1.1.21-11 and later (changed from giftoppm to giftopnm).
