Re: Disabling Sendmail to enable qmail

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hey Ben,

I didn't actually give removing it a try because I know there would be dependencies. But it seems that there are only 2 of them, and useless to me.

error: Failed dependencies:
	smtpdaemon is needed by (installed) fetchmail-6.2.0-8
	smtpdaemon is needed by (installed) mutt-1.4.1-4

Thanks for pointing me to that 'chkconfig' command!

I'm installing qmail from source (I have my reasons btw) but need to remove the original sendmail or at least disable it.
Putting an exit in the init.d script: upgrade might overwrite it (already happend). Maybe there is some kind of sysconfig where I can disable sendmail? DEAMON=No?

But what I really would like, and maybe somebody has it made already, is a package that would replace the current sendmail installation. Simply a pakage that doesn't install anything but only says to the other packages: mail-service is available.

why not just remove the sendmail package?

   rpm -e sendmail

or you can disable the service

   chkconfig sendmail off

alternately, look at the command "redhat-switch-mail", although I think
this only switches between sendmail and postfix.

Cheers, Ben
