Re: [opensuse-factory] inappropriate hard dependancies on mail?

Can it not be (a) bug(s) that so much requires mail be installed?

Maybe that only one or two of the packages you listed really requires
postfix, and everything else is caused by a dependency chain (to see an
extreme example, try "rpm -e --test glibc" - funnily zypper will not
even do that and offers to re-install glibc instead)

Can you please run
rpm -e --test postfix procmail # add more packages if needed
to find out which package has a _direct_ dependency?

sicher, dass Bernd sowas auf seinem Rechner hat ;-)
