I did the CentOS 6 minimal install, and installed Cronie.
As part of Cronie it installed postfix & mysql_libs as dependencies.
Now I have a CentOS 6.2 minimal install and installed Cronie.
In 6.2 as part of Cronie it installed procmail & sendmail as dependencies.
I fail to understand the logic of coding such a hard dependency on cron?
If I try to do a "yum remove sendmail" it will ask to remove cronie as well.
I know i can force remove using "rpm -e sendmail --nodeps" but that would not be ideal as i would not want cron to suddenly crash.
Neither mysql_libs nor sendmail licenses are easy, so having such dependency baked into an essential function such as cron is unclear.
