Description Jeremy Katz 2008-03-11 12:37:44 EDT
perl-devel is getting pulled into the defaults again, it looks like due to perl-ExtUtils-ParseXS. -devel packages should not be included in a default desktop install
Comment 1 Marcela Mašláňová 2008-03-12 05:42:57 EDT
Any thoughts? Is it devel package here indispensable?
Comment 2 Ralf Corsepius 2008-03-12 08:07:30 EDT
One cause seems to be the main "perl" package to requires perl(ExtUtils::ParseXS), because /usr/bin/xsubpp requires it. => installing "perl" pulls in "perl-devel" One approach to circumvent this issue would be to move /usr/bin/xsubpp into a different package. IMO, a feasible approach would be to move /usr/bin/xsubpp and /usr/share/man1/xsubpp* to "perl-devel"
Comment 3 Ralf Corsepius 2008-03-12 08:09:42 EDT
Created attachment 297752 [details] patch to move xsubpp to perl-devel
Comment 4 Marcela Mašláňová 2008-03-12 08:24:20 EDT
Move it to perl-devel isn't problem, but shouldn't we also add into many packages BR: perl-devel?
Comment 5 Ralf Corsepius 2008-03-12 09:00:39 EDT
Could you elaborate? Do you mean this mover would break packages because they currently only BR: or R: "perl" and would have to be changed to R:/BR: perl-devel? I am not sure about this.
Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2008-03-12 09:58:09 EDT
From the man page, it looks like the main user is ExtUtils::MakeMaker so as long as perl-ExtUtils-MakeMaker requires /usr/bin/xsubpp (or the package containing it), I don't think it should have a significant impact on buildreqs.
Comment 7 Marcela Mašláňová 2008-03-12 11:25:22 EDT
Ok, it will be in rawhide soon. Please test it.
Comment 8 Ralf Corsepius 2008-03-14 05:40:57 EDT
Ping? Marcela, *-15 still doesn't seem to have made it to rawhide.
Comment 9 Marcela Mašláňová 2008-03-14 05:51:41 EDT
That's because new builds must be announced to rel-eng. I'll ask them.
