Description Peter Bieringer 2020-10-22 06:55:15 UTC
Description of problem: amavisd-new-snmp can't be installed on EL8 because of dependency "net-snmp-perl" was dropped from EL8 and also not available on EPEL8 Version: 2.12.0-9 How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce: yum install amavisd-new-snmp Last metadata expiration check: 0:15:58 ago on Thu Oct 22 08:35:19 2020. Actual results: Error: Problem: cannot install the best candidate for the job - nothing provides perl(NetSNMP::ASN) needed by amavis-snmp-2.12.0-9.el8.noarch - nothing provides perl(NetSNMP::OID) needed by amavis-snmp-2.12.0-9.el8.noarch - nothing provides perl(NetSNMP::agent) needed by amavis-snmp-2.12.0-9.el8.noarch - nothing provides perl(NetSNMP::default_store) needed by amavis-snmp-2.12.0-9.el8.noarch (try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages) Expected results: working Additional info: There is "net-snmp-perl" available on Okay-repo, but this downgrades also net-snmp-libs (and others). Imho it was a very strange decission to drop the "net-snmp-perl", because potentially this cannot even put dedicated into EPEL8...
Comment 1 Petr Pisar 2020-10-22 08:31:03 UTC
You are right that net-snmp-perl is not provided by EL 8. And that's a mistake in amavisd-new-snmp package. But that could change in EL 8.3 version because CentOS Stream 8, that is a rolling preview of the next RHEL minor release, provides the package <http://mirror.centos.org/centos/8-stream/AppStream/x86_64/os/Packages/net-snmp-perl-5.8-17.el8.x86_64.rpm>. Thus I believe this bug gets resolved when EL 8.3 is released.
