Description Scott Ryan 2006-08-14 06:28:52 UTC
Description of problem: The package perl-Archive-Tar is a dependancy for sa-update, shipped with latest version of Spamasssassin Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install SpamAssassin 3.1.* from FC5 Core 2. run sa-update 3. Actual results: Fails to run because no Archive/Tar.pm found Expected results: sa-update should execute with no problems. Additional info:
Comment 1 Theo Van Dinter 2006-08-14 13:45:50 UTC
fwiw, SA treats sa-update as optional, and therefore its requirements are optional and not set in the default spec file. FWIW, the three that sa-update needs in addition to the normal set are: Archive::Tar, IO::Zlib, and LWP. There's a ticket, I'd have to search for it, talking about making a separate package for sa-update, which in that case could have all the requirements built in. But we haven't gone that route yet.
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2006-08-14 14:57:56 UTC
Requires: perl(Archive::Tar) This has been in our FC6 spec for a while now. I suppose we can push this back into FC5 if we do a spamassassin-3.1.x update there.

I'm running fc6t3+rawhide and it still fails because of LWP:UserAgent missing: raptor> sa-update --help Can't locate LWP/UserAgent.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.7/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.6/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.7 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.6 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8) at /usr/bin/sa-update line 91.

Comment 4 Thomas J. Baker 2006-10-19 13:09:56 UTC
Well I just installed cpan2rpm to try to build the missing perl modules and it installed perl-libwww-perl as a requirement. That fixed sa-learn so I guess it's just a missing Requires. The naming of perl module rpms can be a little bit non-intuitive sometimes. I did an intial yum search LWP and found some perl-LWP-Authen-Wsse and yet the parent module is named perl-libwww-perl.
Comment 5 Steven Pritchard 2006-10-19 16:25:22 UTC
The right thing to do in a situation like this is "yum install 'perl(LWP::UserAgent)'". The package name follows the upstream name (with "perl-" tacked on to the beginning), which doesn't always make sense.
