Description Greg Douglas 2007-08-04 11:35:12 UTC
Description of problem:

After upgrading from FC6 to Fedora 7, perl no longer works.  Any application
that needs perl displays the following error message:

perl: error while loading shared libraries: libperl.so: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory

OR

/usr/bin/perl: error while loading shared libraries: libperl.so: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory


I have checked ldd, and there are no dynamic links for perl.

rpm -V perl gives:

prelink: /usr/bin/a2p: at least one of file's dependencies has changed since
prelinking
S.?.....   /usr/bin/a2p




Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): perl-5.8.8-18.fc7


How reproducible: Every time.


Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.
3.
  
Actual results:


Expected results:
worked fin in FC6

Comment 1 Greg Douglas 2007-08-05 16:32:37 UTC
The update from FC6 to Fedora 7 resulted in yum not applying the dependency of
perl-libs.  This package was never installed.  I have manually added this
package, and the other applications appear to work now.  

Is this dependency missing from the rpms file?

Comment 2 Robin Norwood 2007-08-06 02:44:47 UTC
Greg - this is one we're blaming on yum.  See bug #240540
