vim-6.2.154-5 needs missing perl-5.8.2-2 dependency
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:59:58 EDT
Description of problem:
The /usr/bin/vim binary from package vim-6.2.154-5 requires the
libperl.so dynamic library that comes with perl-5.8.2-2. However, the
vim-6.2.154-5 RPM package does not require at least perl version 5.8.2.
Running "ldd /usr/bin/vim" when perl 5.8.1 is installed complains that
/usr/lib/libperl.so is missing. Upgrading from perl-5.8.1 to
perl-5.8.2-2 solves the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure perl-5.8.1 is installed
2. Install/upgrade to vim-6.2.154-5
3. ldd /usr/bin/vim
Ldd will complain about missing /usr/lib/libperl.so dynamic library.
Upgrading to perl-5.8.2 solves the problem.
vim-6.2.154-5 does not depend on perl-5.8.2-2
vim-6.2.154-5 should depend on perl-5.8.2-2
will be fixed in one of the next releases, patch already commited to
Hm, in my eyes that change/fix is still foo, bar or gaga ;-)
vim-enhanced ONLY requires perl!
The following was generated with ldd after an rebuild from the latest
vim at Red Hat 9 - perl 5.8.0 used:
--- snipp ---
libperl.so => /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/CORE/libperl.so (0x40068000)
--- snapp ---
I think, the problem above was, that vim wasn't rebuilded (or not
Please change the dependence to "perl" instead of "perl >= 5.8.x" :)
No, vim-enhanced really needs to require the right perl version, but
I've changed the requires line to check which version is installed
