Summary: Logwatch does not run from cron
Product: openSUSE 11.0
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Basesystem
AssignedTo: pth@xxxxxxxxxx

Running logwatch as root works OK. However, when ran from cron, it fails with
the error:

Can't exec "sendmail": No such file or directory at /usr/sbin/logwatch line
1017, <TESTFILE> line 2.
Can't execute sendmail -t: No such file or directory

Changing 'mailer' configuration option in
'/usr/share/logwatch/default.conf/logwatch.conf' to contain full path to
sendmail fixes the problem for me.

Looking into factory version shows that it might suffer from this issue too,
but I haven't tested it.
