Packages installed that weren't selected during install
I have setup a new Redhat EL 4 server and specifically removed certain packages from being installed, ie, sendmail, MySQL, PostgreSQL, printer functions, etc...
After the install, all of those packages listed above are showing up as installed in the packages GUI. When I attempt to remove them, I get an error about an Unlocatable package dependency.
Anyone have any idea what is causing this?
One specific example is sendmail. If I try to remove it I receive the error:
error: Failed dependencies:
/usr/bin/sendmail is needed by (installed) redhat-lsb-3.0-8.EL.i386
smtpdaemon is needed by (installed) mdadm-1.12.0-2.i386
The goal is to get a minimal system setup to run oracle and one other specific software program.
