Description Julian Stecklina 2013-11-05 06:38:09 EST
Description of problem:
git-svn doesn't work, because it relies on Perl libraries that are not installed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install git-svn
2. git svn clone ...some-svn-repository...

Actual results:
Can't locate Git/SVN.pm in @INC (you may need to install the Git::SVN module) (@INC contains: /usr/share/perl5 /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 .) at /usr/libexec/git-core/git-svn line 25.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/libexec/git-core/git-svn line 25.

Expected results:
git-svn works.
Comment 1 Todd Zullinger 2013-11-05 10:41:41 EST
Thanks for the heads-up. Something appears to be wrong with the perl dependency generation in F20.  Building this same package on older releases works as expected and adds the required perl modules to the rpm requires.

This isn't specific to, it occurs with in stable as well:

I haven't followed the F20 cycle closely.  Does anyone know if there is some large change to perl that requires changes to all packages that provide or use perl modules?

Comment 6 Todd Zullinger 2014-01-11 13:26:28 EST
I've finally made some time to look into this issue.  I posted to the packaging list for some help, because it appears that a change in the file package is causing this problem.

Comment 7 Todd Zullinger 2014-01-15 10:28:16 EST
I was pointed to #1051598 by Jan Kaluža on the devel list¹.  He and Panu (rpm maintainer) have been working on this.
